Texture Plate Birdhouse

Flowers and Spring! Oh and cool backgrounds too!
This background was made with a texture plate by inking the texture plate direct to paper using coordinating colors of Classic Pads and then spraying the inked plate with water. Carefully set your cardstock panel  down over the inked surface and rub gently over the top and lift. I love this look and had to try a bunch of these with different colors too!
For the flower I used punched crepe paper streamers -the tutorial for this is found on Selma Stevenson's blog here
The colors I used for this background are Blushing Bride and Regal Rose.
Stamp sets: Aviary, Very Vintage Wheel
Flowers were punched using the 1-3/4 Scallop Punch!
