Just Add Ink Challenge #23

Paper is one of those things that you can easily become a collector of! I know many a fabulous girl that buys packets and sheets of beautiful, gorgeous paper just to add to there already 100's of pages at home! Then when it comes time to use it..... well it's just TOO pretty to cut up!!
I'm sure you've all been there........ I know I have!! :0)
So with the challenge at JUST ADD INK to use DSP, I pulled out one of my favourite packs and reluctantly but in the end happily cut a bit of this and a bit of that and made myself a fun, happy, sunshine filled card!
I'm trying to work out how to use a brayer, so here I made some green grassy looking background with the lovely blue sky! I LOOOVE how the brayer doesn't go into those fabulous little stitch marks, it's a really great effect!
Here's a close up:

Even the wing is some DSP!
I hope that this post finds you happy and chirping "HELLO!!"
