H2H Inspiration Photo Challenge

We are having a photo inspiration challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges.  The moment I saw the photo, I knew I would be inking up the Hello Tweety stamp set.  What will your inspiration be?

I love the little flowers on the bird cage and decided to replicate them in my card.  I first punched out my shapes.  Then I misted the cardstock with water and scrunched the flowers up.  The little spray pens offered by Close To My Heart are perfect for misting.  I keep one filled with water in my go to tools!  While the flowers were still damp, I inked up the edges.  Once the flowers were dry, I layered two together and added a pearl center.  They add great dimension to my stamped image.

My card is based on the sketch challenge at Sweet Sunday.  The banner in the sketch was perfect for using my favorite embellishment, burlap!

I carried over the bird cage theme to the inside of  my card. I stamped my bird cage in second generation ink to get a lighter image in the same color family.
