April Swap is for the Birds

 For the All Things Tim swap this month the theme is Birds. I was inspired by my swap partner's extra goodie that Kavi Coulson sent me. She made this card for the March swap, which is so pretty. I love the flower she made and purple(the base color) is my favorite color so the card was perfect for me. 

Here is the tag which Kavi made with the April theme and that inspired my card. This has so many techniques on it. I had to try and follow in her crafty footsteps. 

This is what I came up with for the swap. It's funny because the coordinator of the swap assigned me Kavi for the April swap. I hope she likes this card in return. I had great fun creating it. I used distressed paints for the background, then used some distress ink pads and stencils for some added texture. I stamped some catmint with white ink and pearl embossing powder. I stamped a humming bird and flower 3 times using some distressed ink. Used coffee archival ink for the flock of birds, text and little bird at the bottom of the card .Added a few embellishments and the card was done.

Hope you like the art here. Come back next month and see what I receive from Carolyn Bosley in the April swap. In the mean time, I hope your journey leads you to wonderful places, and back here again.
