I was inspired by someone I found on You Tube Sandy Allnock @sandyallnock to get out the Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and have a messy play.  I used some water colour paper and made my background using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber, Chipped Sapphire and Mustard Seed.

I used a stencil from Visible Image stamps called Atomic Flower and used Distress Ink Picked Raspberry with a sponge.  The sentiment is from Visible Image stamps called Stay Weird.  I stamped it with SU Taken with Teal.  The balloon was stamped with Distress Ink Ripe Persimmon.

I stamped the birds onto some Whisper White cardstock and used an aqua brush  and Distress Inks to colour them in.  I used the matching dies to cut them out.  Where there was a bit of white still showing I went over it with a black marker pen. There's a touch of Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen over the balloon.

I'm adding this card into the following challenges - 

Craft Stamper Magazine - Anything Goes as long as it's stamped
Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes
Double Trouble - Repeat - repeated birds and repeated bubbles partnered with:
Use Your Stuff - Critters
Pinspirational - Photo image

Delighted to have been chosen as one of the Top 3 for Double Trouble

Do you realize there's a 12 word phrase you can communicate to your partner... that will induce intense emotions of love and instinctual appeal for you deep within his heart?

Because hidden in these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's instinct to love, treasure and protect you with all his heart...

=====> 12 Words That Trigger A Man's Desire Instinct

This instinct is so built-in to a man's genetics that it will make him work better than before to make your relationship as strong as it can be.

As a matter of fact, triggering this mighty instinct is absolutely mandatory to having the best possible relationship with your man that the second you send your man one of the "Secret Signals"...

...You'll instantly find him expose his heart and soul to you in a way he's never expressed before and he'll perceive you as the only woman in the universe who has ever truly fascinated him.
