I've had a little go at papercutting before (you can see the results here and here) and I always promised myself that I would do more of it. Of course card orders come in and there is always an album to work on, so papercutting just for fun is put to one side. I spend, ahem, rather
too much a lot of time on Facebook and enjoy seeing the work of Paper Panda and By Charlie's Hand there. Recently I was inspired to have another go at a papercut myself and I was pretty happy with the result!
I took the little bird which appeared on my recent bookmark design and on several of my cards and made her the focal point. The leaves and flowers were built up around her, and the little bird house was added before I began my cut.
I'll definitely be making more.
