Spring Birds

I decided that as I am very much in a Spring mood I would create a couple of Spring cards that I could give to family over the Easter period.
My first card is using 3 Birds from Lost Coast Designs, coloured with DI spiced marmalade.  The background piece was also created with DI spiced marmalade and worn lipstick and spritzed with water.  Machine stitching was added the the outside edges and the finished piece was matt and layered onto blue and orange Bazzil card.  Two small hearts have been added to two of the birds and a small bird charm and crown from Stampotique to the bird in the centre.  'Happy Spring' was one of the stamps I won from a Memory Box competition sometime last year.  Think this will make an ideal Easter card for my 14 year old son Ryan.
My second card is using all the same supplies and stamped images from Crafty Individuals.
My third and final piece is using another image from Crafty Individuals to create a collage composition.
I would like to wish you all A HAPPY SPRING and also take this oppotunity to thank all my followers new and old for your kind comments.  Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

I am also entering these pieces for The Artistic Stamper Creative Team challenge which this month is SPRING HAS SPRUNG and the Stampotique challenge which this time around is ANIMAL, INSECT or BIRD.

These are lovely, Tracy...you know how much I love birds and I am enjoying these very much. You have kept on with the PDCC colour scheme, it seems.
You have covered an interesting range of different species.
