Fly Little Bird Fly

I've been using the embossing diffusers in conjunction with the fabulous Generic Bird Diagram from 100 Proof Press
I have to say I love love the diffusers combined with the embossing folders, I need to play a little more but they are great fun. I've used the damask texture fade ths time around colouring with broken china ink.
I stamped the Generic Bird into the centre panel adding a little dimension to his body and wing.  The bird was again coloured with Distress Inks. I cut two hearts from white card using the mini hearts set and coloured with peeled paint and broken china ink adding stickers from the chitchat selection. "Happy Bird Day" is from Sam Poole's BIRDS plate from Creative Expressions.
I have added wings cut from white card using the heart wings die and embossing with the damask texture fade, colouring with peeled paint ink. To complete I have added coordinated ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend. Tracy x x

Tanks for your comment...I think I asked the wrong question ok I have a couple of the texture fades, forgot they were called that it must be the diffusser that I should have asked about. I love how you have the smooth oval in the middle of your textured layer, that's what I wanted to know about as it is a great effect.
