Stamp-a-faire Challenge #10

Nichole has offered up one last Stamp-A-Faire challenge, and kindly given extra time to get it posted! This last chaellenge is to "add a stamped focal point over a stamped background, all in the same layer!" I just love this challenge, as I've been trying to do more layered stamping.... I love the look!

So I decided to start my layering with BB: Sheet Music, one of my favorite sets, and it hasn't seen the love that it deserves lately. I layered a branch from Little Bitty Bird, and the sweet little birdie, who is popped up on foam adhesive and shaded in just a bit with Copics. I added the sentiment from Make A Wish, again layering it right on top of the focal point.  


All of this was stitched onto a kraft panel that I impressed with the woodgrain Impression Plate, then added a strip of Pink Paislee patterned paper, before adhering it to my spring rain card base. I sort of imagine that the music is giving the impression of that sweet Little Bitty Bird singing the "happy birthday to you" to the recipient! :)



Thanks for looking!

This is so sweet. I love the little birds, and how the sentiment color matches the birds.

Cute, cute, cute. The woodgrain, music notes, and bitty bird go together beautifully. Excellent choices, Debbie. :)
