Birdie House

This week at the Hambo Hoedown, the image was "Birdhouse Estate". It was a great image to color.  Also the challenge was to add "Scallops". If you haven't played along before, check it out at  Here is what I created.

Here's the card partially open


Stuff I Used:
Image-"Birdhouse Estate" digital image by Hambo Stamps
Colored with Copics
Leaves-YG03, YG06
Tree-E11, E13, E15
Birdhouses-BG01, BG05, BG09, YG03, YG06
DP-DCWV Stack 8
Scallop punch-Fiskars
Sentiment-Hambo Stamps digital
Faux stitching-Le Pen Oriental Blue
Clouds-Scrappy Cat Blueberry Blast ink

I colored the image with my Copics and then masked off the tree and birdhouses with Inkadinkado masking paper.  I cut a stencil and inked the clouds in the background. Cut out around the leaves and popped up the image on foam squares. Then popped up another pair of colored birdhouses on foam squares.  I punched the edge of the front flap with the scallop punch. And punched another piece of green paper to show on the edge. I colored a stripe of Oriental blue on the green strip to show through the holes in the top flap.

Hope you like what I've done and love to read your comments.

Greg this is so sweet! I like the clouds and the texture of the houses popping up look great!
So glad you came to the Hoedown again this week :~)
