Two Scribbly Birds

Hi there peeps!  Are you enjoying this little burst of summer?  I've managed to drag myself away from the garden for a few hours of crafty time.

I've been playing with the Scribbly Birds set from Dina Wakley.  I made a couple of background panels using Dylusions paints, then cut two panels using the Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Dies.
I smudged the paints onto the panel, splattered some white, then once that had dried I brayered some white over the top to knock everything back.
I stamped the bird in Versafine Onyx Black, then watercoloured using Distress Inks and fussy cut the image.
Cut-down strips of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Tape were added to the panels for visual interest.
My second card was made using the same process.  I stamped some triangles from Hero Arts Stamps & Cut - Happy onto the panel.
This time I tore the tissue tape into strips to layer onto the panel.
Thanks for popping in, and enjoy this good weather while it lasts!
