Bird Friends

 Hello to you. Meet "Bird Friends".

This is my card for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week where we are visiting My inspiration came from this picture.
I have been delighted to find that Papertrey Ink has branched out and is now offering their products via retailers such as and in Canada I note that they are available via Scrap'n Stamp.

I am hoping Scrap'n Stamp will bring them in their store, but for now they can be ordered via the links I have provided below.

For my card I used distress inks in various colours. In my mini Misti I inked the stamps with the colours, spritzed with water then stamped, filling the cut background. 

I wanted a watercolour look, which I achieved with the spritzing.
I then die cut the bird and proceed to fill in the colours using the stamps provided in the set and distress inks.

I then die cut a spare leaf and stamped using slightly different colours from the bottom leaves and also die cut a white leaf, gluing the white to the back of the leaf with colour.
To finish I die cut 3 of the frames and glued them to the card base. I then added the die cut leaf using foam squares and glued the bird in place followed by stamping the sentiment.

I really like the look of this card and look forward to getting more stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink. I hope you have enjoyed this card as well.

Thank you for visiting today. Following are Affiliate links for the products I have used for this card, at no extra cost to you.
