National Bird Day - DotMCC Challenge #23

Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at Day of the Month Card Club! This month we are celebrating

National Bird Day
celebrated on January 5th.

There are several ways to celebrate this day.

-- Pick up a bird identification book. It will help you to learn about species in your area.
-- Enhance the attraction of your backyard. Add feeders, shelter and more. Learn what birds in your area like to eat.
-- Visit an aviary. At a botanical garden, zoo, or nature preserve, you can get a close-up look at some of the more exotic species you've never seen before.

-- Make a card with a bird! 😉

I stamped the bird and masked it, then stamped the branch and masked it as well. I smooshed the lower third with Distress Oxide Mermaid Lagoon and stenciled sunrays on the upper part.
Using some bleach and a fine brush, I lightened a few spots in the water and underlined them with white gel pen. - I also added two strips of washi tape to the bottom edge.
Branch and bird are colored with alcohol markers. The sentiment is from Stampin'Up. 

Hope you like it. - Have Fun with the birds!
