Spring Bird Crocus from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, it's my turn to share some artwork over on the Chocolate Baroque DT Blog and this one features Spring Bird Crocus which was recently on the Chocoalte Baroque Hochanda. I've used the beautifully detailed little bird stamp to make this project

For this first project I began by applying texture paste through a woodgrain stencil onto a little MDF bird house blank. Once that was dry I added some colour with acrylic paint, shimmer spray and distress ink

I stamped the bird and coloured the image with pencils before cutting out and layering the image up over some scraps of hessian, lace and ribbon from my stash. I topped the birdhouse with some raffia and a little wooden button. Here's a closer pic of the image:

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

CRAFT: Easter or spring
Craft Rocket: no patterned paper

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
