Singing birds

Hi everyone, Janja here!

The sun's rays are more powerful every day and in the morning you can listen to the birds singing.
So, today I share with you two cards with birds.

For the cards we need: 
- white card base: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" (10,8 x 14 cm), folded
- light brown cardstock: 4 x 5.2" (10 x 13 cm)
- patterned paper: 3.7 x 4.7" (9,5 x 12 cm)
- gray cardstock: 3.6 x 4.5" (9 x 11,5 cm)
- white cardstock
- watercolor paper
- Distress inks: Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Lawn Mowed, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Weathered Wookd, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Tea Dye
- Memento ink: Cantaloupe

From the watercolor paper cut out two birds with the tweet die and paint them with Distress inks.

Prepare another cutout and paint it with Distress ink only around the birds. The birds cutout are not removed. Paste them on the back side of the paper.

Once the paper is dry, cut out a rectangle with the largest die from the stitched rectangle set. Paste the colored birds.

Cutout the inscription hello and assemble the card.

For the second card prepare cutouts from white cardstock with the die birdhouse with vine and shadow them.

Place a birdhouse in frame which was cutout with the largest die from the stitched wide rectangle frame set. Stamp inscription and assemble the card.

That's all for today. I hope you like it and thank you for viewing.

I love your watercoloring and the way use used the dies in an inlaid fashion in the first card. I never would have thought to do that. Beautiful!
