Birds of a feather...

...well, you know the saying! 

SU! has some great bird stamps right now.  And, that's this week's Sisters In Stamping theme!

I love to watch the birds outside as they eat from one of my many feeders.  They are all so beautiful. 

When trying to decide which stamp set to use, I had a really hard time!  I had some ideas rolling around in my bird brain, but this is what I eventually came up with.  I have to admit that I don't love it, but I didn't have the time or energy to start all over.  So, this is it:

I'm sorry the image is not so good either.  I must have not been very steady while taking the picture!

I used the Swirly Scribble Thinlits to create the tree and leaves.  I doubled up the Chocolate Chip paper before running it through the Big Shot and didn't take apart the cut pieces.  I liked the look of the texture it gives.  I popped up the leaves using the mini dimensionals.

I colored in the birdhouse and bird from the stamp set using my markers.  I stamped my sentiment and bird and then cut them out using the banners punch.  I adhered everything and it was done!

Check out the other bird projects here.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
