Bird Song

I am entering my next piece into the Crafty Individuals challenge which this time around is a colour challenge PINK, CREAM AND BROWN and Simon Says Stamp and Show a FLOURISH.
I have decorated an arch with stamps from Crafty Individuals using CI-287, CI-218,CI-265 and CI-309. The arch is painted with Gesso and coloured with DI victorian velvet. The flourish stamped in the top corner is from Stampington.
Images have been stamped onto calico, white card and card from Tim's Vintage Shabby paper stack which also has a flourish in the background as does the little bird house.
The flower is cut from Tim's Kraft Glassine using the Tattered Floral die. A white metal bird embellishment and music ribbon complete my piece.

I would also like to enter this piece into Sarah's My Mojo Monthly.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
