Chorus of Birds (by Julie)

Hello, today I have two more bird themed cards.

My first card is a simple little card stamped with Let Your Heart Sing and Live Out Loud.
The little bird and foliage silhouette from Let Your Heart Sing was inked up with blue Versafine and stamped along the bottom edge of the card blank. The rest of the card blank was edged and coloured with Distress inks.
The topper is from Live Out Loud and was stamped onto spare stamping card with blue Versafine, before being coloured with coloured pencils. You will see the edges have been torn and then coloured with Distress ink, before mounting onto the card base with 3D foam pads.

I started the background of this card by applying Distress inks and stamping the small feathers from Let Your Heart Sing and Dawn Chorus randomly across the card using Sepia Versafine. The lines were added by inking the side of a stamping block and applying to the card as well as adding brown inky splodges, to create a grungy looking background.
The tree silhouette from Live Out Loud was stamped onto spare card, before being cut out with a circle die and then coloured with Distress inks. The bird house was stamped onto spare card with Crimson Versafine, before being cut out. Both were attached to the card with 3D foam pads.
The card was finished off with the Live Out Loud sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by and please call back soon for daily Design Team inspiration.
