The Stamp Man ATC April Swap - Birds

Good morning Friends.

Here is my ATC for the Stamp Man ATC swap with a theme of birds.

I seem to be very grungy at the moment and this is a very simple design. Inked background and stencilled bird house design. Stamped very lightly with music score and glimmer misted. Put through embossing folder and inked the branch up. Stamped the bird, cut out, inked over again and covered with distress stickles. Edged with normal stickles, made some flowers and added the title and done. I have used my light tent again to photograph this but I must read the instructions as I am not too happy with the quality of the photo.

Materials used -
Dream Weaver stencil
DIs - bundled sage, peeled paint, forest moss, dried marigold, antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain.
Stazon - timber brown
Glimmer Mist - creme de cocoa
TH embossing folder - tree
TH bird stamp - shabby french collection
D Stickles - rock candy
Stickles - diamond

These posts are scheduled as I am at work but I hope to see you later.

Take care.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

I think we are all still in a Tim Holtz mood, Brenda. I love the stencilling on this, it gives it real depth and the colours are lovely.
