Birds on a Wire- Fair Display

Last month, while we were teaching and sharing the Fun Stampers Journey product, we were asked to create some projects to be displayed in the wall in the DIY Center at the LA fair grounds.  What an opportunity to be able to be on the wall all year.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
The base of the project was 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Black Licorice Cardstock.  I then cut a piece of Pool Play Cardstock at 8 1/4 by 10 3/4.  I dies cut a few clouds from the Cloud Dream die set, also in Pool Play cardstock.  I then distressed these clouds with Whip Cream ink.  I then drew in the lines for "wires" and stamped the birds from the Sweet Home set in Black Licorice Ink.  I then wrapped Black Licorice Twine around the piece of Pool Play cardstock, following the lines I drew on earlier.
I then stamped the birdhouses from the same set in Black Licorice Ink onto Banana Cream, Lavender Fusion and Yummy Prints.  I fussy cut the houses out and then stamped another one on the piece of Pool Play.  I stamped "Life is Beautiful" from the same set in Watermelon Fusion on Whip Cream Cardstock.
I finished off the project by adding Heart Sparkle Drops and flowers.  Enjoy!
