Peony and the birdcaged!

Hi Everyone,
For my card today, I colored up  "Peony" and it's one of my favorite by the amazing artist ching-chou kuik who's whole collection you can find HERE.!
This image, "Peony", can you find here,on  plate 97.:)
Sometimes it's hard for me to start coloring, but Sweet Pea Stamps stamps weave their own enchantment over me by the time I'm finished coloring the image:).
I coloring this beauty with my Copics:).
The flowers are a mix of Prima, and this beautiful DP is from Pion Design!

This bird cage and bird are from a Tim Holtz dies, and I've added some brown Sisal grass inside the cage, to make it look like a nest!:) On the bird I've used tissue paper.
All the edges are distressed with Distress ink-Vintage Photo, and sewed with my sewing machine!:)

Here is a close up of the image, beautiful "Peony", and you can find here HERE
Hurry over to the Sweet Pea Stamps shop today!!!! You'll be glad you did!;)
Thank you for stopping by, and your sweet comments!

Hugs, Ellen
