Tweaking the Candy Cane Lane Birdhouse Card

Thank you for all your lovely comments about my birdhouse card yesterday... I am glad so many of you like it as much as I do...

So yesterday I admitted that I had already been tweaking my Candy Cane Lane Bird House card... so I think you may like this one too...
I just grabbed some watercolor paper, Pool Party ink and an Aquapainter...and gave it a good old random watercolor wash...

Everything else the same as yesterday's card... though I did forget to tell you a few details yesterday...
Greeting inked up with Pool Party ink pad, then inked up Christmas with a Real Red marker pen...and the rest with an Early Espresso marker pen...

The Seasonal Bells plant pot described in more detail  here... but I used Early Espresso card and ink...
And the Soft Suede wood post is wood-textured by stamping the Timeless Textures wood effect stamp in Soft Suede

And oh ... the inspiration for this card came when I was making this one...

Now which do you prefer? Wash or white!?
And oh... you may have noticed that the white version has had a little dressing up too... care of Fine Tip glue and clear Mica Flakes on the roof...


  1. I like both of the cards...can't choose just one!Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks Cheryl... I can't decide either!!

  2. I missed this yesterday - I LOVE the birdhouse - I like white

    1. Thanks Margaret... Great to see someone who can make a decision!!

  3. Great cards ... both versions! Thanks for sharing the pictures and the details.

    1. Thanks... And you are welcome....

  4. Lovely cards, both versions, particularly like the washed version!
