Chocolate Baroque: Framed Bird

Good morning, friends! Just a quick post from me to show you a card featuring stamps from this month's release. This really is a simple project to put together. Although the fussy cutting may look daunting, I found it strangely therapeutic. 

The bird is from Chocolate Baroque's Free As A Bird A5 stamp sheet and the sentiment is from the A Little Bird Told Me A5 stamp sheet. For the background I used Craft Concepts Woodgrain Embossing Folder and did some direct-to-paper action with Tea Dye Distress Ink to accentuate the design.

I cut out the frame for the bird with Spellbinders Label 18 and Classic Oval dies and inked the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink. The sentiment is stamped with VersaFine Vintage Sepia

I stamped the bird with Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured it with Graph'It alcohol markers. Then I fussy cut and adhered it to the embossed background and over the frame. A few strokes with Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Brush over his tail feathers and a few blobs of Liquid Pearls complete the project.
