I love birds on cards, they are so versatile for so many themes and decided to treat myself to this Memory Box Madeleine Bird die No. 98424 (£5.99).
I’ve kept everything very less is more, using old music paper for the background. Although it doesn’t show on the photo, I have mounted the birds and their wings on self adhesive foam pads for extra dimension. A bit of faux stitching and a flat gem eye completes the effect.
I can see me using this die over and over again, I want to try it using felt and delicate patterned fabrics when I have got a little more time to fiddle fart …. I am not the best or most patient of sewers, but I am thinking brooches …. ???
