Birdhouse Card

Hi Everyone, I immediately fell in love with the new Fancy Birdhouse die from Cheery Lynn Designs as soon as I saw it and gathered inspiration for my 7 x 7 card from feeding all the birds that visit my garden, so I am sharing with you my DT card this week for Cheery Lynn Designs.

My background was made with shading Distress inks over cardstock, stamping on feathers to give a cloud effect and spritzing with water. I tattered the edges with a Distress Tool.

I layered my grass in two shades of green and shaded a little Distress Ink onto my fence to shabby it up a bit.

My Birdbath was layered twice with a little Silicone Glue added into the bath part to give some extra dimension and Distress ink added to it and my birds for shading.

My sign was cut out in white and the pole area coloured with a Black Copic Pen. I layered the oval area twice with Silicone Glue and stamped on my sentiment and added a little bird.

My branches and leaves were all shaded with Copic Pens and my Blossom had a little Distress Ink added into the centre with a little yellow Stickles.

My sun is made using the Sunflower die, colouring also with Copics and adding a little orange Stickles. My Birdhouse was cut out 3 times and shaded with Distress ink. I paper pieced the fence area twice and my roof three times to give the effect of being 3D.

Well I do hope you like my card which was a lot of fun to make. I have another few plans for the Fancy Birdhouse die which I will share with you over the coming months.

Thanks for stopping by today, your visits are always appreciated.
