Feeling Brown, Blue and Cream

Here is one of my fave colour combinations when crafting, blue and brown, it is especially beautiful when teemed with flowers and birds.

All the stamps are from Indigo Blu, “Live, Laugh Love” and “Nature 1” except the little flowers which are from Stampin Up.

Stamped the bird onto tissue paper and whilst drying I painted the Ornate Frame die with some blue and beige chalk paint. Used the same paint for the bird before adding to the middle of the frame. Also ripped the tissue very gently to add a more distressed feel. Matted everything onto brown embossed cardstock which I enhanced with a little gilding wax called Patina.
