For The Birds

For the next two weeks at Ruby's Rainbow our challenge is 'For the Birds'.  I am sure this will be a popular chocie for their are many sources with birds available. Please do pop over to the blog to see the wonderful collection of so many different birds. I have had this stamp for ages and this is only the second time I have used it, note to self, must use more often.
Background created by blending TH Distress Inks - Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed, Shabby Sutters, Peeled Paint. Spritzed with water. Stamped with leaves from Sheena Douglas Leaves set, using the same colours I blended with plus a few with Mowed Lawn.
Embellished with stamped, cut out leaves from the same stamp set. Two pretty fancy buttons and lace from stash.
The main image is from Inkylicious - Birdcage 1 - background blened with Scattered Straw.
Birds coloured with watercolour pencils. Cage higlighted with a gold gel pen.
Sentiment from Kaisercraft. I am looking forward to visiting your blogs to view your birds, have fun and happy crafting.
