A Little Bird Told Me

Here's my second post with a card I've made for this week's Sunday Stampers Challenge and Hels' theme is Wings of A Dove so anything with wings goes.
I decided to stick with the birds and have made a card from bits and pieces in my experiment box. Happily I found a few using different techniques that I think work well together (I hope you do too!). Here's the card:
Here are the techniques used:
Diamond Paper - Twist on Resist Technique using an Impression Obsession border stamp, crystal embossing powder, Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmade Distress ink and Palette Landscape permanent ink.
Scroll Paper - simply hammered texture card rubbed with Olive VersaColor ink and stamped with Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz flourish.
Butterfly Paper - thick watercolour paper rubbed with Topaz VersaColor ink, stamped with a butterfly background in Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink and then sponged with Distress inks in Spiced Mamalade, Crushed Olive and Vintage Photo.
Tiny Border Strip - a small scrap of Watercolour Crayon Technique paper which was embossed and well as stamped on.
Flower Embossed Panel - simply cream card embossed with the flower scroll folder from the Sissix Floral Flourishes and Vines Set. This was then sponged with Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive and Scattered Straw Distress inks and swiped with Vintage Photo.
The bird stamp is Crafty Individuals CI-193 and was coloured with Prisma pencils and a little Distress ink to blend the colours.
The flower is by Crafty Notions and was painted with Twinkling H20 paint in Garnet.

Wow Fliss - what a great selection of techniques and "bits and pieces" as you call them (I would call them inspirational works of art)! The colours blend together so well, as do the different designs, and they are a perfect backdrop for the beautiful birds image.
