Case Study Challenge #100

Good morning beautiful friends!!!  Today marks the 100th challenge over at Case Study!!!  Whooo hooo!! Congratulations!! Case Study is one of my favorite challenges and I couldn't be more thrilled to be their muse this month!!  This week's card is one of my favorites!  I went through a Little Bitty Bird streak when the stamps came out and it was fun to get them out once again!!!
Here's the card Iwona chose:
and here's my take:
I love, love, love, the Little Bitty Bird Stamp Set by PTI and I added some elements from Little Bitty Bird additions.  I stamped the flower pot and flowers and then masked them off and added the fence.  Soooo fun!  The little birdies needed something new to perch on!!!
I used Aqua Mist ink to ink up the flower pot stamp then I rock and rolled the inked stamp onto my classic kraft ink pad.  I just love that technique!  It makes solid images much more interesting for sure!
I colored the birdies using Copic Markers in a simple blended and oh so easy!!

Papertrey Ink Stamps:  Little Bitty Bird, Little Bitty Bird Additions, Garden Variety II, Nativity Silhouettes

Hi Nancy,
The tree is from Merry Little Christmas. I have used that tree for so many different things besides Christmas! I love it when stamp sets are universal!!
