Birdhouses and Morning Glories


I am doing the Inspiration Challenge, IC456 that was listed Saturday on Splitcoaststampers. I am using the colors here for my inspiration.

I colored with Copics and used a die cut frame for placing my image. Then, I added two die cut branches and a sprig of ivy.

Recipe:
Stamps-Northwoods/Three Birdhouses with Morning Glories and Birdhouses
Paper-Stampin'Up! Baja Breeze and Sage Shadow cardstock, PTI white cardstock, unknown brown cs
Ink -Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Spellbinders lattice rectangle die, Marianne Design Creatables/Bird, ivy, vine, birdhouse die set, Memory Box/Woodland Branch die
