Songbird

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.  Before anything else, I want to say a big welcome and thanks to all my new recently joined followers. It's lovely to see you all.
I have a card here which I think fits 3 different challenges:
Papertake Weekly  with a theme of red or green must not be seen
Saturday Spotlight with a theme of music
Stampin for the Weekend with a colour theme of blue and brown

Ingredients Used:
Crafty Individuals Stamp CI-224
Magenta Cling Set CSET15
Clearly Inspired Stenciled Flowers MCS216
Music Background Stamp
VersaFine Vintage Sepia Ink
VersaColor Smoke Blue, Sky Blue and Lilac Inks
Neocolor 11 Watercolour Crayons in blue shades
Cream Card
The background paper for this card was made using my watercolour crayon technique and the blue crayons. Please click on the side label if you'd like full instructions on how to make this paper. I stamped the roses on in smoke blue, then sepia. This gives a lovely antique looking paper.
I stamped the bird design twice and inked one with the VersaColor inks. I cut just the bird from the second and stuck this on top of the coloured bird panel.
I stamped the music background in sepia and tore the edges. I then stamped the square floral design from the Magenta set in sepia down a long strip of cream card. I stamped the music text in sepia and cut out by hand the piece I wanted to use. I assembled the card as shown in the photo.
