Bird-Day Wishes



A fun 'threefer' card on this marvelous Monday (marvelous because the sun is shining once again!).  Here are the three challenges I'm playing along with...
Tag, You're It!
Retrosketches #215
Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Birdhouse. 

I started with a watercolor wash on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 " panel of Ranger watercolor CS using Tumbled Glass distress ink. I used an angled brush and scribbled the ink in a diagonal direction. Next step...cutting 6 stitched die strips (Lil' Inker Designs). 
Since they weren't long enough to use only 3, I had to 'piece' them together behind the tag.  I used Reverse Confetti's The Tweet Life stamp set and coordinating dies.  The large tag and the checked flag are also dies by RC.  

PAPER: Quilting Bee by My Mind's Eye; X-Press It Blending Card; Ranger watercolor CS.
