Les Oiseaux

This month the Creative Expressions DT are using the fabulous Sam Poole designed 'Birds' set. Now, birds are just about my favourite image so I know already that this will be a great set to use!
I started with an ATC cut from mountboard and inked it with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks. The Branch was Inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and I wiped each leaf clean and inked them with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. The birdcage was stamped with Black Soot Distress Ink.
I die cut a banner and stamped the sentiment (for those without Google translator - it says 'The Birds'!) and added a bird stamped on dictionary paper with Tea Dye Distress Ink (I have fallen in love with this colour again!) and I inked one of Tim's trimmings with the same ink as a nest.
For more inspiration with this stamp set, please visit the rest of the DT who have lots and lots of ideas! Oh yes! This is my 200th post! Thank you for sharing it with me!

I love the colours you have used here (and I rather like the fact that the bird has escape from its cage).
