Dies R Us Challenge - BIRDS

Hello Friends!
It's mid month and of course that means it's time for a new challenge

And, the theme is:

BIRDS

 Here's what I came up with using dies from the Dies R Us Store.
Don't forget, they carry more than dies now ... paper, ink, etc. etc.  be sure to check it out!


I don't know about you, but I love sitting out on the deck in the summertime and watching the birds!  It is so interesting in how they interact with each other, the way they fly is so different one species to another and their songs!  OMG I could listen to them for hours.

Hubby and I are always trying to pick out the bird that is singing a particular tune ... some of the smallest birds have the loudest song!  AMAZING to watch & hear!
Did you know the Blue Jay has something like seven different calls?? 

 The dies I have used today are:
Penny Black 'Sweetest Sound 2'
 Impression Obsession 'Bird on a Branch'
Sue Wilson Design Shadow Boxes 'Stitched Lattice Frames'
Yvonne Creations Moving Madness 'Home Sweet Home'
Poppystamps 'Carolina Birdhouse'
Tutti Designs 'Scalloped Stitched Nesting Squares'
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide 'Salty Ocean'
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide 'Lucky Clover'

 I first created the background panel using a scrap of a cardbase that I had messed up earlier in the day.  I simply sponged Tim Holtz distress oxide inks on this panel, sprayed with water then dried with my heat tool.  Once nearly dry, I ran it through my embossing machine to straighten it out.  Then adhered it to my card front.

The lattice was actually die cut from a old DCWV muted green designer paper.
The bird house and birds were colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.
 

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
YOU might even be the winner of a Dies R Us Gift Voucher!

Thanks for stopping by ...
As always ...
