Come Fly with Me at Crafty Cardmakers and More

Evening Everyone,
There is a new challenge today over at Crafty Cardmakers and More.

Viv is our host this time and her theme is 'Come Fly With Me'. She would like to see either birds or something bird related, ie birdcages/houses, as the MAIN focal point of your project. Butterflies and fairies don't count!
We are sponsored this time by Hobby Art  and Di's Digistamps.
Now as you know I am lucky enough to be on the Design Team for Hobby Art so I have used the same fabulous stamps CS065D Bird Song as Jenny has provided for our prize.
I stamped all of the images onto watercolour card stock using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I have then used a damp paint brush to colour the images just gently pulling the ink from the stamped lines.
I fussy cut the birds and added them to the card using Silicon. The greeting is also part of this lovely set.
I cut out the branches using a Nestie and added some faux stitching and some tiny dots. I also added a little glitter glue to the flower centers.
The background papers are from my stash.
Don't forget to stop by and show the rest of the team some love. We had 125 entries for our last challenge which is just fabulous, so lets see how well you do this time.
I've had a little unexpected babysitting to do tonight. We watched Planes and ate Peanut Butter ice cream, it was about all we could get down at the garage tonight. Still it looks like we are finally going to get a delivery on Wednesday or Thursday, weather permitting, so we might actually have some customers :O)
Have a good evening.
