Spring Birds (by Julie)

Hello, the two cards I have to share with you today are following on with the bird theme for this month.

My first card is stamped with Fly Away With Me. The background has been coloured with Old Paper and Weathered Wood Distress Stains, before being over-stamped with the swirly tailed, stylised bird and egg designs.
The decorative bird tiles were inked up with grey versafine and stamped onto spare stamping card, before being cut out and coloured with Distress inks. I then stamped the two birds from Fly Away With Me using Crimson Versafine onto the panel as shown. You then need to take a craft knife and snip a little insert under each bird for one of the tiles to be placed so it looks like the birds are actually perched onto the tile. The remaining third tile can be attached with 3D foam pads towards the top right of the design.
Cut the decorative panel to size, mount onto black card-stock before attaching to your card blank.

My second card is stamped with Dawn Chorus. The base card was coloured with Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin Distress inks and then the little bird and decorative swirl were over-stamped in the bottom left and top right corners of the card, using Onyx Black and grey Versafine.
The little Dawn Chorus scene was inked up with Onyx Black Versafine and stamped onto spare stamping card, coloured with Distress inks and then cut out and mounted onto black card-stock.
The card was finished off with a sentiment from Paisley Elephant.

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