Bird House

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog today! I guess it is spring, as I find myself drawn to my bird images lately!  Yesterday, I received my supply of Bister in the mail, so I thought I would give it a try.  It is similar to Brushos, though the crystals are not as brightly colored.  I began by laying done a number of different colors of Bister onto card and spraying with water and then drying the card panel.  Next I dipped a small paint brush into Goldens' Titanium White Fluid Paint and splattered it on the card base.  The nest and bird house, by Red Lead Paperworks, were stamped on vintage paper and trimmed and added next over a distressed doily. The eggs in the nest were painted with Silks.  The birds, also by Red Lead Paperworks, were stamped on water color paper and water colored, trimmed and added to the card front. Some burlap string, vintage buttons and a feather complete my card.  I am submitting my card over at the new challenge called Stamps and Stencils, a Mixed Media Challenge.
