Little Bird House

 Here is a 3D Spring-like little bird house project I have created.  I have kept the colours to Spring-like colours of yellow, green and brown.
I have used a template from Craft Artist for the bird house and used papers from Bearly Mine Designs Mixed Media set for the inside and outside of the birdcage.
 I have used a set of stamps I bought in a Stamp Addicts sale a few years back.  It is a set of gorgeous birds which I have stamped with Versafine sepia and cut them all out.
 All around the bird house I have punched out various flower shapes, inked every layer and stuck them together.
For the flowers I have used various shades of yellow and green backing papers from the Bearly Mine Designs Plain and Simple and Mini Dots.
 Here you get a close-up of the punched/inked and stamped flowers along with the cute little birds that I have inked and cut out.
 As you will see all sides and the top of this bird house have been decorated.
Apart from the stamped birds, punched/inked flowers the bird house has been simply finished off with a ribbon bow.
