One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #8 - Scenic Christmas

Hi Stampers,
Welcome to a new challenge at One Layer Christmas Cards.  We are challenging you to make a Christmas card and the theme is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist of adding Trees,  if you take up the Optional Twist you have a chance to Win a Stencil at the end of the month.
My card today was created by inking up a clear block, spritzing it with water and stamping on the card.  I then inked up the stamp and stamped over the background when it was dry.  I coloured the bird with a Real Red Marker before stamping.  I finished off with some Linen Thread.
Stamps: S/U's Many Merry Messages, Scenic Seson
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Mossy Meadow
Markers: Bashful Blue, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Real Red
Finishing Touches: Linen Thread
Cool Tools: Clear Block, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Mini Spray
Great to have you visit.
