So today we get down and grungy at Linda's on page 39 of the Compendium of Curiosities! I had no mishaps, so I am thinking I must have missed something. There is plenty of inking and just a touch of stamping, in fact I used 10 inks to achieve the colors I wanted. The background paper (SU) was an afterthought. The birds had already been inked and I was not sure how I wanted to place them and then came across the perfect colored background paper. Then I remember the lovely brown lace trim! The perch is off of a climbing rose. The birdhouse is a Sizzix die, in which I cut two roofs for more dimension. The birds are more of those new not released Sizzix dies and I just love them. I cut out an extra wing again for more dimension. Pearls were used for the eyes. This was another fun project! It did take 3 1/2 hours from what am I going to do to completion. Is this normal???
I forgot to add the envelope I made to go along with the card! May you have a fabulous week! Thank you for taking the time to visit and comment.
