Flourishes New Release: Home Tweet Home

New release time at Flourishes! Today's look is at the set, Home Tweet Home.
I love the elegance of Webster's Pages patterned paper and I knew they would work well with these gorgeous stamps. I die cut the largest Label Two Nestabilities. I stamped the branch once on the die cut piece and once on a scrap. The second image was used as a mask so I could ink a light blue chalk ink around the edges, leaving a white space on the inside.

The bird was stamped, colored, cut out, and foam mounted. I also did the same thing with a few leaves.
Make sure and check out what the rest of the talented team created:
"Be sure to check in on the Flourishes Newsletter for details on how you can win this set and all three new sets being released Friday!
