A Little Birdie Told Me

Hi everyone, today for my DT inspiration with CraftConsortium I using one of my favourite paper pads called Bloom Beautiful, I just love the colours, designs and pretty birds in this collection.

I started by matting and layering various papers from the pad, tattering them at the edges with my scissors for a shabby feel. I complimented this with some lace and ribbon.

I added sections of a Die Cut Doily behind my image and tattered layers which I heat embossed with a Pearl Embossing Powder.

My pretty little birds were fussy cut and added amongst my flowers to compliment the design on the paper.

Finishing off with lots of bling and a tattered banner with a stamped sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments and please do check out Craft Consortium and follow them on Facebook and Instagram for regular inspiration and giveaways.
