A branch full of birds for the Mojo Monday challenge

Would you believe that this is the sixth card I've made today! What a fantastic bank holiday.

I got up early this morning and left DH in bed to sneak a little extra crafting in. After brunch we went out on our bikes. It's the first time I've been cycling in over two years so we took it pretty gentle today, just a short 4-1/2 mile round trip on the Trans Pennine Trail. Feeling OK at the moment, not sure yet though whether the legs will complain tomorrow, lol.

Then this afternoon I've done a bit more crafting and played along with the Mojo Monday challenge, which being the last Monday of the month, is a choice of round or square.

I opted for square this time:

Stamp set: Queue Up
Cardstock: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, SU Markers
DSP: Tall Tales
Punches: Scallop Edge, Extra Large Two-Step Bird

The birds were stamped in Black Stazon and coloured with SU Markers. This layer was matted onto Chocolate Chip and then a scallop edged layer of So Saffron that I created using the Scallop Edge punch. A bit fiddly and I sort of wish I'd "cheated" and stuck a few Scallop Squares together instead. The branches were adhered with Tombow and the bird was popped up on a dimensional.

And where are the other cards I made today? Well they're my DT samples for the In Love With Stamping September challenges so you'll have to pop back for those ;-)
