For this card, my starting point was the vellum overlay that I had hiding in my box of UFOs (Unfished objects) that I had stamped in black and then heat embossed in clear. The stamps are from the Happiest of Holidays set (Winnie & Walter by Evelin T. Designs).
I coloured the image using some Promarkers on the back of the vellum and folded it over the top of my card, adhering is at the back. To creat the background, I used a little ink smooshing (distress inks) and stamping in black (Bokeh dots, Essenials by Ellen), making sure the circles were lined up correctly behind the sentiment on the vellum and above the birdhouse to make it look as if it's hanging down from there.
