Thank you

Hello, I'm here with a quick card today, its my new stamp from Impression Obsession.
I picked up this huge stamp on my last visit to Oystertsamps and it should be one I use a lot with all the birdwatching men in the family!
(thats the feathered variety of course)

I've used vintage sepia ink pad from versafine to stamp the image. Its a lovely big stamp but I didnt have an acrylic block large enough so I just inked up the stamp and used it as it is, no block at all and it worked fine.
The papers are from papermania boofle pack. I've only used one sheet and cheated by cutting out frames for the layering instead of using proper mats. Should I tell you that? do I should really tight? noooo! I just cant bare to waste my lovely papers and hiding them behind another one does seem like a waste to me. so frames it is!
I wasn't really sure about this die-namics bow die, the packaging doesn't really make it look pretty or exciting does it but heyho, I thought i'd give it a try and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. the bow looks lovely.
I think I need to add some nice thick 3D foam into the bow so it wont get flattened in the post, I like my bows to be nice and puffy. 
hmm 3D foam or silicone glue? now that is a dilemma.
i've only tried the glue once and I was left with a mess and a dried up tube of glue!
maybe its time for me to try again but I need all the silicone glue tips I can get from you clever crafters first.
