Spring Birds

Good morning and hope you had a lovely weekend. Today I have another project using the fab Spring Birds rubber stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

I started by sponging Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink on a plain piece of card and then stamped the birds from each of the 3 stamp sets before colouring with Spectrum Noir pencils. I then covered the stamped card with a coat of Acrylic Wax which creates a soft sheen to the card. When the paint was dry I brushed over some Vintage Photo Distress ink which has highlighted the brush stokes left from the acrylic wax.
The stamped sentiment, coloured with Mustard Seed Distress Ink is from the Artistic Expressions  stamp set which I stamped onto card and edged with ribbon from my stash along with the outside of the card. As you can see I have also added buttons to each of the corners for a finishing touch.
Thanks for looking.
