Animals or Birds with MMM

Caz over at Make My Monday has asked her fellow design team members to work on a masculine theme all month and this week she has challenged us to make our cards etc in a masculine genre but to include animals or birds.

Men and/or Boys Only

Animals and/or Birds

 My card is A5 in size and has been covered using Tim Holtz paper which has been overstamped with the background design from a Rogue Redhead Stamps.  
 The focal image is "Bird Post" from Stampendous - which has been stamped in Versafine Sepia. I have "spotlighted" his head and crown by colouring a section and triple embossing.

Copper embossing powder has also been used in contrast to the blue background. My frame has been hand cut and covered with music sheet paper before a large button and string was added. The corrugated kraft border is a recycled piece from old packaging.
 I am entering my bird card into the following challenges:-

Bunny Zoe Crafts - "Ribbon or Twine"
Everybody Art Challenge - "Card for a Man"
Cupcake Craft Room - "Bugs n Birds, things with wings"
Cards for Men - "Texture"
The Paper Shelter - "Wings & Things"

We are sponsored again this month by Marianne Designs who have donated this great prize:-

 The ladies over at MMM have as usual excelled themselves.  I hope you can join us!
