"The Birds and the Bees"
There is a real mixture of stamps on this card from different manufacturers - I've put all the details in the ingredients list at the end for anyone who's interested. The background is done with lots of masking, stamping and sponging & colouring with distress inks. The bird is stamped in black archival and then given the colourings of a bullfinch using distress markers before cutting out and adhering to the background with Pinflair for dimension. The sentiment is stamped in archival and diecut before sponging the edges with distress ink. The flowers & lace are coloured with distress inks to match the rest of the project.
