For the Birds

Yesterday's Splitcoaststampers Ways To Use It Challenge was to incorporate a bird on your creation. I immediately thought of the fabulous collage birds that Della carries at the I Brake For Stamps website. I stamped my Flying Swallow Collage from I Brake For Stamps using VersaFine Onyx Black ink, then sponged in some Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky ink. The beautiful Wild Orchid flowers are also available at IBFS here

The school year is winding down! Two more days next week and then off to see my daughter in Utah for a week! I am looking forward to summer!
