SOS196 - the Earth has music

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called The Earth Has Music. The name made me think of songbirds and I went to look through my stash for bird stamps.
I used an old retired  Stampin' Up! stamp set called Touch of Nature and a small sheet music stamp from Prima in the background. Sentiment is also from Stampin Up.
I stamped, colored and embossed the bird with clear EP, then sponged and stamped the background.

Challenges:
Retro rubber - sketch
Try it on Tuesday - they who have wings
Crafty Cardmakers - Wings
Challenge Up Your Life - embossing (use clear EP on the bird and also the dark green panel is embossed)
Amusing Challenge  - Birthdays

Love the way you have used the sketch, very clever. This does not look like stamping, it looks like a minature painting. Thanks for joining us at RRBC this week. Cx DT
