Birds on Wires


One of my first cards on day one of the 


I tried the technique demonstrated by Laura Bassen of 
using inks on an acrylic block and spraying with water, using a variety of 
Ranger Distress inks.  I then took a large Nestie oval and used it as a 
template to draw in the wires across the inked area before 
adding the birds (Memory Box dies).
The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Happy Trails.  
I used 300 gm. watercolor paper, I love how rich and thick this stuff is!
Thanks for stopping by today!
