Spring Happy Birthday

Today I am showcasing the fabulous Collage Equinoxe stamp set from Katzelkraft.
Spring is in the air this week, I have been spending more time in the garden and that's what inspired this piece. My background has been coloured with Mustard Seed Distress Ink, applying touches of Vintage Photo Ink around the edges.
I bleached out some of the areas on my flowers using a water brush, it makes the flowers pop which I love. I have also added touches of stamping to the background using the background stamp from the So Special plate using Potting Soil Archival Ink. I love the combination of the yellow and the brown stamping!
I stamped the bird from the Tampons Decoratifs Oiseaux plate to add a little more interest to my card and I also included a stamped sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
