Bird Song

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Wishing you a happy Sunday!

I hope you are all well and having a great weekend.

A new card to share using the Les Beaux Oiseaux papers and ephemera from my shop over on Etsy called Emerald City Crafts UK. You can purchase the physical packs or as digi downloads.

I used this sketch by Milo Lilja

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card from Anna Marie Designs.
2. Matted and layered musical paper which has been distressed with DI walnut stain.
3. Matted and layered feather paper onto Kraft card also distressed with walnut stain.
4. Matted and layered the bird ephemera onto Kraft card distressed edges with walnut stain.
5. To finish off added the sentiment, feathers, metal flowers and pearl gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
