A Bird of a Different Feather

This is my version of an idea I found online. I used a doily stamp to create the pattern on the bird. The Distress Embossing Powder gives it texture. Love this idea! The paper flower was coloured with Glimmer Mist. At first I found the mist too light, so I dipped it in the excess mist which had pooled on my craft sheet. I was annoyed with how the flower soaked up the mist and turned quite dark. However, once dried, the flower was lighter in colour and complimented my card.
