Feather Weather Friends...

OK, so no prizes for guessing what my inspiration was for todays' card LOL!  As soon as I saw this fortnights Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Feather Weather, I remembered a very old piece of Jenni Bowlin paper in black and white with these four gorgeous birds sitting on the branch of a fruit tree.  I adhered the paper to a sheet of cardstock for added rigidity and fussy cut the birdies, then using a combination of Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean and Broken China, I colour washed the birds to match the inspiration photo colours.  I stamped this gorgeous Technique Tuesday Botanika cherry blossom branch three times to create a collage of blossoms in the background, and pop-dotted the birds over the top.  The Verve sentiment is stamped in Broken China before being mounted on cardstock and Fancy Pants paper.  Other than the sentiment, everything on this card is more than 5 years old, perfect for joining it at Use it Tuesday Anything Goes! The layout is loosely based on this weeks Clean & Simple Sketch, the colours of this weeks Inspired By and Catered Crops Mellow Yellow Challenge, and inked feathers from CASE Study.  Playing over at Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes too.
