Arches Birds - SCD

This week it's Laura who has set the theme for our arches and she chose "Birds"
Well we all love birds right?
...Here is mine
Stamped the bird (Crafty Individuals) in Archival sepia and masked it (I wanted to keep the creamy colour of the base card showing through the flowery bits!)
...inked the base card with DI's worn lipstick and shabby shutters
...stamped the T!m clock on a piece of inked up card and cut out and tattered round the edge
...stamped the T!m line of birds in Archival black
...Is it me? But that middle bird looks like it's had far too much Cava!!! HOL
...stamped the T!m wordy/postcardy bit in Archival crimson
...stamped the T!m tattoo border in Archival coffee and the swirls in DI tea dye
...word fragments Studio G..........mmmm! Love those :)
...Sing letters Papermania
...felt it needed something to finish it off so added Glossy Accents to the bird and pearls to the side........I'm going to make a plug here 'cos those pearls are really lovely....nice finish and gorgeous Prima and I bought them at The Artistic Stamper
...tattered the edge and inked with walnut stain and tea dye

...So come on and play along this week and create an arch for SCD
Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
