I was trying for an organic look and started out by messy water coloring a background using Ranger Distress Mowed Lawn ink onto Ranger watercolor card stock. The sentiment from the Simply Stacked Sentiments set was stamped directly onto the panel using Rich Cocoa ink. The wreath was cut from brown card stock and twice from plain white card stock using the Grapevine Wreath CutUps. The layers were stacked together and glued to the background. I cut three leaves from spearmint cardstock using a die from the Leaves CutUps and then sponged around the edges with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink. After stamping one of birds from the Take Flight set using Blue Jay ink, I cut out with the matching die from the Bird Friends CutUps. I also stamped one of the leafy branches from the Wreath Building Kit, colored with Copics and then fussy cut out. After attaching the leaves and bird to the wreath, the panel was attached to the card base with craft foam.
