Vintage Birds



















This is the colour palette chosen by Sarah this week at The Play Date Cafe ,  I have been so busy lately that I have not had time to play on this challenge for two weeks and I have really missed it.  I love colour challenges and they always choose great colours , this one is no exception, greens and lilacs go so well together.
















I have had fun on this vintage style card using both digital images and traditional stamping. The vintage looking post card is from a digital image from Hero Arts called "Skyland Birds".






















The background stamp is called Lace Background and is also Hero Arts , I stamped this in peeled paint, embossed in clear and then distressed.

I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend and only one more week till we break up from school for the summer, can't wait!!

Hope you all have a relaxing weekend too.

Supplies: Hero Arts Stamp S5341  Lace Background, Hero Arts Digital Kit  Skyland Birds,  Peeled Paint distress ink.
