Spring Blue Bird

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.     This is my second post today as I have another design to show featuring Chocolate Baroque's new Spring Bird -Tulip set. 


The background is Dylusions inks with a little Brushos sprinkled over top and then spritzed with water.  I stamped in the background with the little decorative stamp at the top and tulips (hard to see) on  the bottom half which created some depth.  I coloured the sweet bird image with pencils which I love to use for small detailed images.  I added a little glitter to the flower centres.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirleyx

I saw this over at CBDT blog and it is gorgeous. I adore these new stamps and couldn't resist buying them as I love these pretty birds and the Spring flowers too. The background on your card is beautiful Shirley and the yellow at the bottom reminds me of a carpet of daffodils. x

BEAUTIFUL !! I love birds and this scene is particularly lovely. I had to swim through the snow to get to my bird feeders today, but the hungry little guys seem to appreciate my efforts. NO sign of Spring here!

This is so lovely and the results you get with coloured pencils are amazing. Love this card with the sweet bird perched on the flowery branch.
