Hi! Card

Hi everyone :-D

Yesterday I made this Hi! Card

I used super cute 'Birdy' digital stamp (freebie) from Create a Smile and made callout shape using MS Word. 
I printed image and callout on white cardstock paper, colored them in watercoloring technique using only one color (Tim Holtz´s Distressed Ink Mustard Seed), water and brush, fussy cut them and added transparent varnish to create glossy accents
Adding transparent varnish I managed to smear birdy´s eyes! I was sad that happened because I was really satisfied with my coloring, but that didn´t last too long. Paper piecing was solution to my problem. :-D
I printed another birdie, colored only eyes, fussy cut them, colored edges with permanent black pen, glued them over smeared eyes and added transparent varnish again, this time carefully. :-D  
After varnish was completely dry, I added dimensional foam behind the Birdy and callout, and placed them on a yellow colored panel. 
To get this lovely yellow panel, I colored white cardstock paper with Mustard Seed Distressed Ink, using blending tool, and splattered it with water, using paint brush. I´ve done this before, and if you like, you can see it here.
At the end I embellished card with black faux enamel dots I made. I found great video tutorial by ScrapTips on YouTube and had to try this. First I made glue dots with glue gun on backing paper and then colored them with Staedtler black permanent pen.

Card dimensions are 105 mm x 146 mm (4 1/8" x 5 6/8").
