Birds and Blossoms

There were a couple of die cut and coloured birds loitering amongst the 'stuff' on my desk so I set about using up more of my snippets of white card to die cut some branches for them to sit on.  Had to dig out the extra long cutting plates for this die which is a long narrow strip with foam backing - ancient but still works well. Branches and leaves were coloured using alcohol pens.  I also had some small stamped, fussy cut flowers which I needed to use up so they were added as the blossom.  After considering the elements I decided to assemble them onto a DL card, adding a simple greeting.

 Birds - from Best Birds stamp/die set Stampin' Up (retired)
Branches - very ancient Sizzix long strip die
Blossoms - from Free as  Bird stamp set Stampin' Up
Colouring on Birds and Blossom - watercolour pencils
Colouring on Branches - Copic alcohol pens
