The Birds Are Singing

Not outside, but on the card...

It is snowing here....AGAIN!!

And sadly, I know it is not the last snow of the season--far from it.  I live considerably south of where I did this time last year--and I think somewhere I got it into my head that there would be less snow.  An in a way there is...but not the "less" that I had envisioned.

So, though I shiver while stamping...I can still pretend that flowers, blooming and birds are laying eggs, and that those eggs are hatching with cute little birds:

You make my heart sing

I bought this set last year as a Mother's Day gift to myself.  I haven't used it much--as it had to be packed up shortly afterward.

The birds are first shaded a bit with alcohol markers (Copic and Prismacolor) and then colored with colored pencils.

The sky was sponged with Antique Linen and Broken China Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  The bird tracks were stamped with Frayed Burlap.

The card base is watercolor paper--and the ribbon is May Arts ribbon.  The images were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento on Georgia Pacific white cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by!
