Songbirds by Julie Lavalette

Hi Everyone, it's JULIE here today. In Scotland the Songbirds are all starting to sing. It's so lovely to hear them happy now that Spring has arrived.....unless it's 5 o'clock in the morning ! So my card today was taken from inspiration of the blossom filled trees and these beautiful birds.

I started by layering up a couple of my stacker dies to form the frame of my card. I love how the inverted scallops give the appearance of a postage stamp edge.
My branches were all cut out in textured Green Cardstock and I went over the branch area with a Brown Copic Pen. I then shaded a small piece of White Cardstock with a few shades of ink and then die cut out my flowers and added a little Stickles into the centres.
My sentiment was stamped onto patterned paper.
My sweet little birds were shaded with Distress inks to look like a Robin and a Blue Tit. I added a drop of Liquid Pearls for their eyes and highlighted the details of the die with a Fine Liner pen. If you google an image of the kind of bird you want to colour on your die, I find this makes it easy to shade them.
