One of the most talented among us blogging paper crafters, Sally Holmes, writes for Creative Stamping.   A publication I've been known to buy a time or two, with projects this month from Sally it was a must have.   The fact that the plate of stamps it came with this time are all lovely bird themed stamps simply endorsed the decision.

The scene on this panel basically duplicates the arrangement of these stamps on the plate.   Stamped on London Fog Memento ink the birds and bird house coloured with ProMarkers.   Bird house masked and the background created with Adirondack inks and Inkylicious dusters.   I love those double ended brushes they help create light and gentle effects.    Completed the card has been turned into a panel with a TH tag die, a carefully placed bow and slots cut into the card to slide the bottom corners into.
