A little bird told me.......

My last Handy Hippo project for the present, in time for the summer break.  I've chosen to make a card using one of the lovely Wild Rose Studio stamps 'Feeding birds.'
The card base is 5 inches square and cut from Kanban blue damask card. The image has been stamped and then coloured in a watercolour effect by scribbling with AquaMarkers onto a palette and then adding a drop of water to the colour before picking it up with a water brush.
I've used Kanban beige script card to mat the image and then used the same card to cut a tag for the 'Happy birthday' sentiment.  The tag has been tied to the card with organza ribbon and I've used a few 3d foam pads to hold it in place.  Some adhesive pearls have been added to finish it all off.

Here are all of the products I've used with links to find them on the Handy Hippo site.

I thought, as this was my last Handy Hippo project for the time being I would enter it for a few challenges:
Moving Along With The Times - Birthday
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards #16 - Anything goes
Fab 'N' Funky #127 - Cute and girly
Creative Inspirations #169 - Anything goes
