A Flower and a Bird

Here's a card I made some time ago but hadn't shared yet.  For the background I started with a piece of natural sticky back canvas - stuck it to a piece of cardstock and stitched around the edges.  Next I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and I'm pretty sure some of Wendy's Archival Ink, probably potting soil & cornflower blue.  I also added some kind of yellow, maybe Chrome Yellow Archival.  The text (Wendy Vecchi stamp) is stamped with cornflower blue.  Archival potting soil ink around the edges.  The flower (Wendy Vecchi Stencil, 3 Fresh Flowers) is stencil with Wendy's white embossing paste and after it was dry colored with Archival Inks (cornflower blue, chrome yellow, and fern green).  The grass (Wendy Vecchi stencil, From The Garden) is stenciled onto cardstock with fern green ink, cut out, and a bit more green added to the areas that weren't stenciled.  It was stuck along the bottom to the background and also stitched on.  The bird (Tim Holtz die) is cut from grungepaper, inked completely with Adirondack white pigment ink, dried well, and then colored with Archival Inks.  A black dot and then a small white dot for the eye.  Thread a button, glue it to the center of the flower, and layer the piece to your folded card.
