Yes, another chipbird...

It’s hard to tell on this photo but the branch of chipboard is Old Olive and the bird is... wait for it... Bordering Blue. Yes, the pale one from Rich Regals. It’s embossed with clear embossing powder which, strangely, only serves to make it even darker.

What a difference from the last project, on which the bird was also inked in Bordering Blue! The difference was this time the ink was applied directly to the bare chipboard, whereas on Tuesday's journal, there was a layer of Whisper White craft first.

As the bird turned out so dark, to liven it up a bit, I added some white gel pen (then heated it gently again to set – don’t know if it worked though, I daren’t touch it).
