Bird house

Here is my card for this week at Heartfelt Creations!
I'm just loving this new collection Birds and Blooms.

Heartfelt Creations

I had great fun colouring this image !
I am still frightened of colouring but I have learnt to relax with it now.
Just playing with pens and inks really helped.

Here is what I used to make the card:
459222 Blossom Tool set
HCPC-3648 Home Sweet home Cling stamp
HCD 756 Birds and blooms die set
HCD 757 Leafy Branch Die set
HCPC 3644 Birds and Blooms Cling Set
HCPC 3645 Leafy Branch Cling Set
247027 Fantastix Blending tool

Other Products Used : Promarkers Ivory, cornflower, Powder blue.
Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint Distress inks. Brown ink, 
Gems, Blending solution, glue, 3D foam pads, white cardstock, 
Die cutting machine, Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight Die

Die cut the frame die and the oval die together. Using the white card stock 
cut a tent fold card 4 3/8" x 5 5/8". Place the frame over the card and 
then stamp your image in the oval centre. This ensures the image is in
teh correct place on your card. Colour the image and adhere the frame
to the card. Stamp the Leaf, the birds, and the flowers with
brown ink. Colour the birds with alcohol pens and colour the leaves with the 
peeled paint ink using the blending solution and tool. Shape the flowers and
leaves and adhere gems in the centre of the flowers. Adhere the flowers, leaves
and birds to the card and your project is complete.

Happy Crafting !
