Best Birds negative die-cutting

No sneak peek today I’m afraid but I do have (what I think is) a quite exciting project to show you. 

I was playing around with “negatives” – the bits left behind after die-cutting, and wondered what I could make by planning the negatives carefully. The result was this card. I can’t pretend it was quick. I can’t pretend it was easy. As for whether it was worth it, I’ll let you decide. 

I backed the birdy piece with a sheet of Serene Scenery DSP. It’s a photograph of the sky, which is quite apt for the images, and shows the different shades of blue behind the birds quite well, too.
