So Tweet - Watercolour

I dug out my watercolours for today's card which I made using a set by Winnie & Walter called 'So Tweet'.  I also used a Merry Christmas sentiment by Woodware 'Hand Drawn Greetings'.

I heat embossed the birds using black Versamark ink and clear embossing powder & I then coloured them in using watercolours.
 
I very carefully (after the birds had dried) painted in the background and again waited until that had dried before I heat embossed the sentiment using white powder.
 
I coloured in the lettering with watercolours and then splodged and splattered some Picket Fence Distress Stain over the top having masked off the birds and sentiment first.

I always find it hard photographing cards during the Winter months because of the gloomy light we have here, particularly at the moment.  I go around the house looking for a place with good natural light and end up contorted in various positions which my Pilates teacher would be proud of, just to get a straight on shot!!!  :-)
