SSSS - THE Wendy Vecchi - Studio 490 Style

This weeks challenge on Stimon Says Stamp and Show is THE Wendy Vecchi - Studio 490 Style.  I'm a big fan of Wendy and her stamp line... and can hardly wait for her new Art Parts release to start showing up in stores!!  I decided to make this bird for the challenge.  The base is a piece Maya Road Chipboard in the shape of a bird.  I used Wendy's technique of first coating with Adirondack snow cap pigment ink, drying it and then using distress ink over it.  I LOVE the look... light and soft and chalky... way cool!!!  All stamps used are Wendy stamps.  Flowers are Tim's tattered floral cut from grungepaper... the smallest flower is the same flower as the other one but I cut off about 1/2 of each petal... works perfectly if you need an even smaller flower than the die cuts.  Ideology foliage, jump rings, and philosophy tag.... and on the tail, film strip ribbon cut into thirds, fanned out, and stapled on using the tiny attacher.  Enamel accents for the center of the smallest flower and on top of the brad in the center of the metal flower.
