Love Warms Every Nest

Time for this weeks creation using the Umount Birds A5 Stamp Plate by Sam Poole from Creative Expressions.
Once again I have created my background with Distress Inks, spritzing with a little water to add to the atmosphere of my piece. To add a little more interest I used the flowers from the Eco Green Garden Chic set which seemed perfect for my birds to nestle in along with the bird houses.
I created my sun cutting a circle from scrap paper and using the aperture as a mask.  I also used the tiny leaf from the set to create my vine. All my stamping is with coffee Archival Ink.
I added a little dimension on the hearts, stamping with monarch orange Archival Ink for a liitle more interest. 

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
