A Little Bird Told Me

Good Morning Followers, Friends, Bloggers.  It's a lovely sunny day here in Norway and warm so out in the garden I should be but I just wanted to do a quick post just to keep us entertained.  Me as well!!  This is a bit CAS using some delighful chip stickers from Basic Grey.   

I have been quietly following Joan's Garden for a while but this is my first time for joining in with the challenge.  It's a weekly challenge and there is usually a recipe to follow which can make it quite interesting.  This week it was plain background, double oval, a sentiment and at least two colours.   I had these lovely Urban Prairie Chip Stickers from Basic Grey.  I used white hammered card for my background, a flower flourish and bird chippy, mostly pink.  I cut two ovals using Spellbinders dies and distressed and coloured the edges with Distress Ink Picked Raspberry.  Then I spritzed them heavily with water and had a cup of tea.  This let the ink diffuse nicely into the card.  I dried and then stamped my sentiment in Picked Raspberry.
