Birds of a feather!

Hello everyone, this card was made for my neighbour who kindly mowed my lawn for me over the weekend.


I have used antique linen, old paper and tea dye to colour the backgrounds and the image.  The feather on the background using a resist technique and as an embellishment are from the 'Free your imagination' set which you can buy from Visible Image.  The topper is  from Inkylicious, and the thank you which is nested on a spellbinders label die  is from Rob Addams. Enjoy the sunshine.  Till next time .....................
