Keep A Song In Your Heart

Today I am using the SONGBIRDS plate from Artistic Outpost.
I began by spritzing my card with water and then brayering Broken China Distress Paint over the white card and then lightly brayering over the top with Rusty Hinge.
I stamped the Songbirds onto a piece of white card which I had brayered with Distress Paints, stamping the image with Potting Soil Archival Ink, I also added Rusty Hinge Distress Ink around the edges for definition. A touch of background stamping has been added using the background stamp from the GENERATION REDUX plate and Rusty Hinge ink.  I then added a tag stamped with the text from the SERENITY plate, perfect I thought for the Songbirds. I also added a small circular plate with a touch of stamping from the same text stamp, adding Rusty Hinge Ink to the edges of both tags. I have also included two coordinated buttons threaded with natural twine.
Seam binding died with Distress Ink has been added along with a mini tag with SONG stamped from the text stamp and I have also included a metal embellishment coloured with Distress Paints.
To complete I have also stamped the Songbirds to the inside of my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

LOVE this color combo! The brayered inking is so cool - must give it a try. Beautiful arrangement of the stamps and that painted metal piece is to die for! An absolutely gorgeous card!
