Hi guys, Shelley, here! I made this fun little hanging with the Song Birds collection.
I covered the chipboard bird with paper from the 6"x6" Song Bird pad. I used leaf and vine diecuts from the Song Birds line. I made the flowers by diecutting banana leaf paper, stamping them, then finishing them off with glass beads.
The banana leaf paper gives such an interesting texture for the flower petals. This beautiful green color really brightens up the project!
On this page, I used the Debbie Mumm Songbirds diecuts with Sunburst Luminarte H20's on the yellow butterflies and Mediterrannean Luminarte H20's on the blue one. The Luminarte makes them sparkle! I also used Silks paints in Solar Gold on the small flower, and Sky Blue Silks on the little dots on the blue butterfly. To finish out this "Peaceful" project, I used Swarovski eye candy crystals in several different colors. Thanks for letting me share this project with you!
