Hello Bird

Hello all and Happy Mother's Day! I got to enjoy most of my day at work (boo), but the boss did buy us some donuts! Poor guy is surrounded by women, he is used to it though he has a house full. ;-) I am stopping by to share a card I made and am linking it too Addicted to CAS challenge blog.

I love these birds from Tim Holtz!
For the card I smushed some distress ink on my mat and sprayed it with water, then I layed the watercolor panel on top. Dry and repeat until I got the look I was going for. I then stamped the bird and sentiment, not having branch stamp to fit under him I drew one with a pen. Added some leaves and then layered the panels onto my card base.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
