O is for Oriole

Hello.  Welcome.  Whilst sorting out my definition for my osteosomething card I spotted Oriole on the page I had copied.  Oooh, I have a lovely oriole stamp from Stamplorations so I decided to make a second card, which had been my intention with all the letters, but I haven't managed with a lot of them so far.  And since I was using a Stamplorations stamp I decided to incorporate one of the spotlight project ideas I had been wanting to try.

This is the large Oriole stamp from Stamplorations.  I embossed black powder on yellow card and fussy cut.  I wanted to try some of Deepti's idea.  I made a brusho background with yellow and orange and stencilled Jumbo Java chalk through Stamplorations stripes and dots stencil.  I cut a black frame and some flowers from painted card using Sizzix dies and added the bird and OED definition.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Golly, I think I like the oriole even better. It is gorgeous and that background is stunning.
