Little Bird

Here's my second post which I think fits 3 challenges with different requirements which I'll list when I've shown you my creation.
I've gone a bit blue and green today (my previous one had these too) and made the backround with my Distress Ink Grunge Technique ( see side bar) which I'm loving as it's such a quick and easy way to make your own background paper. I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint Distress inks with the Inkadinkado Garden Delight clear stamp set.
I stamped the sweet little bird image from the Papermania Henbury Lane Collection PMA92061205 Bluebird in VersaFine Majestic Blue ink and mounted the panel on contrasting card.
I made the flower by punching out to sections from metal foil with a Woodware embossing punch and inked it with Olive Green Stazon ink and Palette Landscape to give it a green tinge. I added a little black round the edges for definition. I then shaped the petals to give a 3D effect.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Blue and Green
Craft Your Passion - Make Your Own Flowers
The Shabby Tea Room - A Little Bit Of Metal
