Nice Little Things

Click to Enlarge

Hi Everyone,  with winter now just around the corner here in Scotland, I have started to feed our Garden Birds once again. This week my Cheery Lynn DT card is inspired by them and the Summer flowers that are now all disappearing.

Let me show you previous layers again on this card to make it easier to understand how I made it.

You will see I layered my French Flair Doily stackers rotating the following layer to a diamond shape and I paper pieced in my Snowflake Doily at the back.

I shaded my leaves,birds and birdbath with distress inks and my flowers were coloured with Copics.

I stamped my verse, added a little distress and accent stamping to soften the sharpness of the white card.

Happy Crafting,

Julie x
