Less is More ~ Week 50 ~ Birds

It's been a while since I joined in with a challenge over at the 'Less is More' blog.  Partly because I'm not very good at the LIM principle although I do love it, and partly through lack of play time.  However, when I saw that their new challenge involves birds I felt I had to have another try, especially as I've finally caved in and bought some Distress Inks!

Here is the card I made:

I masked off a panel and used Peeled Paint and Tattered Rose Distress inks and then stamped a flower border and some wee birds from the Kanban 'Peacock' set of stamps using Adirondack Pitch Black dye based ink.  The sentiment came from the same set of stamps.  I'm not totally happy with the positioning of the panel.  I think it's a little too far to the left, but on the whole I'm pleased with the overall look of the card, and my stamping went well, just for a change!

Enjoy the rest of Monday evening and thank you for looking.

This is lovely Beth, I always find vertical panels more tricky than horizontal ones.
Super job!
Thanks so much
