Spring At Make My Monday

Hello everyone, a rather late post today to tell you about the new challenge we have for you today over at Make My Monday which is because over the weekend my laptop decided to die so I had to have all my stuff transferred to my younger one's iMac which is a right pain as it's in her room so I can't do as much as I need to at the moment.
Rosie has picked the theme this week which is Spring and a great one as it looks like it's finally appeared here at the moment.
Here's my inspiration which I hope you like.

The background paper here was made by inking the card using an acrylic block and Victorian Velvet Distress ink. I then stamped on a leafy sprig from a B Line Designs cube using Victorian Velvet and Crushed Olive just around the edges.
I stamped the Stampendous bird on smooth cartridge paper inking it with VersaFine Vintage Sepia on the bird portion and VersaFine Spanish Moss on the leaves. I coloured the bird with a touch of brown and pink Aquamarker then die cut the image to an oval and inked the edges with green.
I attached the background paper to a card blank and after checking the placement with the image panel, stamped the Flonzcraft sentiment with the sepia ink before attaching the panel to the card.

Have a great week.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Very cool card design. I love the background you pretty and lovely colours. The bird is sweet and I really like the two toned stamping. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/ Add a Little Green Challenge at Craftitude this fortnight. I hope you join us again soon.
