Hero Arts Week Day 3

Today I have another card created to celebrate the Hero Arts blog hop this week.  This card uses the beautiful leaves and flowers from the With Sympathy and Delicate Leaves sets.
    1. Stamp the flowers multiple times using Rangers Distress Ink Scattered Straw. 
    2. Sponge the edges of the panel using a golden dye ink. 
    3. Accent flowers and leaves with watercolor pencils. 
    4. Stamp sentiment using Ranger distress inks Tea Dye.
    5. Stamp birds using Tea Dye and color using Tea Dye and Scattered Straw.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    12. Sue, you've definitely sold me these stamps. Your card is another stunning example of how they can be used. The little bird is exquisite and I love the touches of colour you've added to the leaf edges.
