Just because..

I wanted to I made card.  I did want to use my new Stampendous bird stamp though.

I dug out some very old K&Co paper, a strip of cardboard I had lying on my desk.
I have used Seedless Grape and Faded Jeans distress inks to colour the card and cardboard along with acrylic paint.
The charming little bird was coloured with Inktense water colour pencils and the flowers were layered.
The chipboard frame was originally green however I sanded then coloured with a mixture of distress inks, I added crackle glaze to the sentiment and  micro beads.
Stamped and water coloured butterflies and twine were added. I would like to enter the following challenges:-

Make my Monday - anything that flies

Live and Love Crafts - 50 Shades of Lilac

No Matter Which Challenges - Things with Wings

Hope you enjoyed our two days of summer in the UK, glorious weather - as this morning it is back to normal, wet and windy! Suzanne
