Generic Bird

I've been using the Generic Bird Diagram from 100 Proof Press to create my card.
The background piece has been cut using the vintage cabinet card die and coloured with broken china ink adding a little peeled paint to the edges. The Generic Bird has been stamped with black Archival Ink and coloured very lightly with Distress Markers.
The branch has been cut from the bird branch die, coloured with vintage photo ink and clear embossed. For a little more interest I have added a trim using the iron gate die, again coloured with broken china and peeled paint inks.
I love how your have the bird parts named on this stamp, gives a little more interest. BIRD was added to the bottom of my card with Alpha Parts.

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x

Hi Tracy
Sorry I have been absent and missed so much of your art.
This bird is just that little bit different than the usual bird stamps, I like it a lot especially the way you teamed it up with such a beautiful shade of blue.
