Art In Miniature

It's time for me to reveal my second DT creation for Creative Expressions this time using the Creative Expressions Posy Florals 1 stamp set.
I've decorated a mini bird house this week which I have painted with bundled sage Distress Paint. I have also added the bird house to a mini stand.
The flowers are from the Posy Florals1 stamp set coloured with worn lipstick Distress Ink, with added metal flowers added to the centre. I have also added two black crows from Wendy Vecchi's Embellish Your Art range, and also added a touch of golden light Metallic Gilding Wax to their bodies. FLY has been added using label letters.
Wendy Vecchi's White Embossing Paste has been added through Wendy's Lovely Leaves stencil for added depth and interest. Twigs from my garden have also been added along with a pewter bird house charm.
Assroted Key Charms have been added around my piece for added interest, texture and depth.
Random stamping has been added using the background stamp from Tim Holtz Classics 9 stamp collection using sepia Archival Ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
