Today I have a couple of cards that have backgrounds created with Blending Brushes and using a number of stamp sets.
The background was made using Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz inks with Blending Brushes. The panel was then embossed with one of the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folders. The raised part of the embossed leaves was then enhanced with a Blending Brush and Pear Pizzazz Ink.
The birds from the Pretty Birds stamp set were coloured using the two-step stamping method (actually 3 step for these birds) and then fussy cut and added to the art panel using Dimensionals.
Inks used for the birds were Memento Tuxedo Black (outline), Tahitian Tide, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue, Old Olive and Parakeet Party.
The small birds on the background panel and the sentiment are from Heron Habitat stamp set.

The wisteria leaves were stamped with Old Olive ink and the wisteria flowers with Fresh Freesia and Highland Heather inks.
The bird colours are Pale Papaya, Parakeet Party, Mango Melody and Poppy Parade.
The bird cage was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends.
