A New Theme at MMM

Welcome back, at Make My Monday we are pleased to start the new year with a new topic, it is the turn of Fliss to choose the week's in January weekly topics, her overall month's theme is NATURE. We are starting off for the first week with BIRDS. A very popular subject during 2011, so we are hoping to see lots of entries, please pop over to see the team's samples for there is such a wide variety.

I choose to use a DL card, I do like them for some cards, for they give depth. The background to this card is the result of one of those messy spritz and spray sessions I so enjoy from time to time. I use so many methods of just making a mess, I can't recall the colours I used but they would be a mixture of Cosmic Shimmers and TH Distress Inks, with a few splashes of clear water here and there. I stamped the flowers and humming bird with memento Tuxedo Black ink  and then heat embossed with clear EP. I used a black card to matt it, then onto red card. Small diamond jewels were added, for a little extra bling. Sadly Cosmic Shimmers don't shimmer on photos as they do IRL.
Stamps used are from Kanban. I look forward to blog surfing to see your first entries in 2012 to our challenge blog at Make My Monday.
