Simon Says - Fur or Feathers

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I was so inspired by all the wonderful makes on the YouTube Live launch of Tim Holtz new Colorblock fabric and while I wait impatiently for mine to arrive, I made a card with a nod to the resident feathered friends in my garden and used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Lovebirds Thinlits with Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements fabric from my stash, Idea-ology Specimen Remnant Rubs and lots of machine stitching to create texture and dimension.
I fixed Heat and Bond to Tim Holtz Correspondence Eclectic Elements fabric, die-cut the bird, feather and hearts using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Lovebirds Thinlits and also trimmed a section of the selvedge edge.
I die-cut the same pieces from Distress Watercolor card, attached to the fabric die-cuts with Distress Collage Medium and applied Scorched Timber Distress Ink around the edges using a Distress Tiny Blending Tool. I machine stitched the feathers, hearts and selvedge strip to a panel from my background box and again applied Scorched Timber Distress Ink around the edges.
I added the die-cut bird popped up on foam squares, trimmed out small sections from the fabric, fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium and added an Idea-ology Tiny Clip.
I added Idea-ology Specimen Remnant Rubs
To finish I matted the panel on to Distress Black HeavyStock, trimmed 1/8" larger and fixed to an A2 white card blank.
