3 Birds and a wreath

Hello. Some playtime again and creating with a new die set:

The wreath die comes with a bird die, and to create the colours I ink blended some Distress Oxide colours onto Bristol smooth card stock – Milled Lavender, Kitsch Flamingo, Bundled Sage, Faded Jeans.

Out of these pieces I die cut the wreath from the Bundled Sage, and the the birds from the other colours.

I embossed a piece of card with a Simon Says Stamp 3D embossing folder, trimmed the edges with the Tim Holtz Deckle Trimmer, and adhered with a piece of craft foam.

I glued the wreath down, but as it is quite a fine wreath, I only placed the glue on strategic points, there is some movement and dimension, and then added the three birds which I had layered and glued together.

I did play with placing them down individually, arranged around the wreath, but it looked a little off, so I decided on this way.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
