Decorated Birdhouse

This week we are working with new products from Creative Expressions; the Swirl Background Stamp and an MDF Birdhouse Frame.
I have also created step by steps in a worksheet which you can print HERE.  The birdhouse has been painted with Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Paints and the central panel has been stamped with the Swirl Background Stamp.
I have added Bitty Blossoms to the bottom of my frame cut from Teal Foundations Card, adding Pewter Gilding Wax to the edges of each petal.
I created two dimensional hearts using heart cookie cutters and Black and Lapis Saphire Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals. 'BEAUTIFUL' has been stamped onto white card using the Taylored Expressions Discover Your Wings Stamp Set and Aquamarine Archival Ink.
I have added background stamping using the Newsprint Background Stamp and Watering Can Archival Ink.

Don't forget it is "Fun Time Friday" once again on the Creative Expressions Facebook page, simply leave a comment and you could be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
