Spring Picture Inspiration At Make My Monday

Hello everyone, I hope you've had a lovely Easter and haven't eaten too much chocolate! I've managed to restrain myself so far as we only just finished all the choccies we got at Christmas which I can tell you were rather a lot!
Today we have a new challenge for you over at Make My Monday and the theme this week chosen by Suzi B is a picture to inspire you and you must include a bird or birds in your entry.

A lovely picture I think you'll agree and here's my inspiration:

My background paper was made by applying patches of Distress inks in shades of pink, green and yellow with a Ranger ink applicator tool. I then stamped on the Crafty Individuals flourish with Archival Fern Green ink.
I stamped the Stampendous bird on smooth cartridge paper with brown and green inks and then coloured the image with pencils before trimming to a circle with a Spellbinders die. I added a scalloped, die cut green mat.
The flowers by Crafty Individuals were stamped with brown ink and coloured with pencils and cut out. I stamped the Flonzcraft sentiment with the brown ink and cut it out as the image is a little large as a panel. I inked it pink.

Have a great day and I'll see you next weekend as we're off to Kent for a few days tomorrow so my Friday posts will be scheduled and will hopefully publish when they should!
Fliss xx
