Happy Birdie One Two

Greetings Nomad friends and followers.  Happy May Day to you all.  Wow, so that was April.  Just when I thought spring was here.  Tonight it's frosty again.  I think we may be in line to skip spring and go straight to summer. 

Over at Altered Pages we are playing with birds.  Now, I did fancy doing an ATC on eco-board because it's so nice and chunky to work with but I decided to make a hangy thing with some eco-board inchies from Altered Pages.

I used two postage stamp style stamps with birds on them.  The owl is from Crafty Individuals and the other is from Clearsnap.  I painted two inchies with purple acrylic paint, stamped them with the bird heads then covered with glossy accents.  Then I stamped the same stamps on glossy card, tinted with DI Dusty Concord, cut them out and stuck the inchies over the images.  I arranged them collage style and added some flowers and a bird from Altered Pages collage sheet 708D.  The frame is recycled from an old cardboard box.  I ripped some of the top layer to expose the corregations, painted with acrylic paint and some DI.   The words are from Crafty Secrets Angelic booklet.
