Another Crafty Secrets card!




I recently purchased these beautiful bird stamps from Crafty Secrets. I stamped them on watercolor paper with Brown Palette Noir ink. I colored the images in with watercolor pencils. I adhered the image to a piece of corrugated cardboard from an old box. The paper is again from K & Company. I distressed, sewed, and added some vintage ribbon and buttons. The small round sentiment at the bottom was adhered on a large button. I then added crystal lacquer and a rhinestone to the top. Lastly, I placed a green leaf behind the button to give it a flowery look.
