DragonsDream - TIO - B - Flower

It's my dear dear friend Gabrielle's choice of theme for our tags this fortnight, at DragonsDream... she wants us to use the letter B and flower.  I went for layered flowers - and bird .
 I started with Stone mixed with Tikka Fresco paint (blending on the tag with a brayer, tag spritzed with water to help the blending process.
the bird is on of Dina Wakley's fabulous Scribbly Birds, stamped onto the tag and then the feathers "painted" on  afterwards..  I used a piece of the twiggy bits my friend Lin gave me ages ago, for the bird to sit in.
 the flowers are from my stash - the large one, I sprayed with orange spray (probably Dylusions, but I did it so  long ago and put it away to save, that I can't remember...) it's got a flourishy type stamp stamped on it too.. again, no idea, was at least a couple of years ago I did this!  Layered it up with some other flowers and a brad for the centre.
the little birds are stencilled (one of my Paris stencil haul!) and the sentiment is from the Scribbly Birds set.

We look forward to seeing how you interpret this theme - don't forget you must use at least one real stamp, on your tag. Have fun!

I really like the feeling of hope in your composition, which truly reflects the quote. The beautiful flower makes me think of the sun, and the bird is just precious. Blessings!
