Bird Shaker

Morning and I have two DT post today the 2nd one is for the new ATG/Shaker card challenge at 613 Avenue Create twist suggested by Natalie.
I started making a cute little circular card with the Bird image from IndigoBlu cut with a circular die and a blue sky behind---
THEN I had the bright idea of adding some fibres for a nest and whilst looking for that found one of the new stamps I won,unused as yet so stamped that as a background added some Aztec paint/the fibres then added the shaker part but the smallest seeds I had were the grains picked out of the hamster food---SO---this is the end result of a cutie circle card lol ended up glueing it all to a CD and will put a hole though and make a hanger but was pleased with the result.

What a great idea to use bird seed as the shaker elements. The perfect card for a bird lover xx

Cath Wilson said...

What a great idea, Carol..great nest, though it needs a bit of cassette tape to be totally authentic - only joking, but one of the things I noticed about a lot of the nests I've seen is that they tend to have strange shiny bits and, for some reason, it was often video/cassette tape. It always made me giggle, lol. Your hamster food looks brilliant - I'm sure the birds would still eat it and no one else would know any different. Love the background.
Thank you for sharing with us at Try it on Tuesday.
