Scribbly Bird card- Tweet! Chirp!

Happy Tuesday, Crafting Peeps!

This month's Tim Holtz Tag inspired me to make today's card.  I recently picked up the Dina Wakley "Scribbly Birds" stamp set and it worked so well with the watercolor technique.  The bird was colored using Ripe Persimmon, Tumbled Glass and Evergreen Bough.  Legs and beak with Mustard Seed.  After the bird dried, I applied Aqua Stickles to the bird feathers and clear Pearl to the beak:
The crinkle bow was colored using the body colors listed above.  
All of this was mounted on black card stock die cut using Spellbinders Floral Assortment. Stickles in Aqua was applied to the die cut.  The patterned paper is from Tim Holtz' seasonal pad and Recollections Chunky Embossing Powder in Aged Silver was applied along the edges.  
The inside is a sentiment from the same set.  So sweet!
Another look at the outside:
Hope you like the bird card!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day.
