Simon Says - Let The Music Play

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 created a page in my Stamperia Mixed Media Journal with a nod to the bird song symphony I enjoy every morning from the green finches and sparrows in my garden. I used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Planks Background Cling Stamp, Idea-ology Serendipity Collage Paper, 49and Market Spectrum Gardenia Rub-on Transfers and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Feathered Friends and Alphanumeric Theory Thinlits.
I began by colouring a panel of Distress Watercolor card with Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks, stamped the Planks Background, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Archival ink, tore around the edges, inked with Scorched Timber Distress Ink using a Tiny Blending Tool and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
I added torn strips of Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Serendipity Collage Paper, 49andMarket Spectrum Gardenia Rub-On Transfers and some long since retired Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Music Note Remnant Rubs.
I die-cut the branch with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Funky Floral Large Thinlits and coloured with Scorched Timber Distress Ink and Distress Oxide ink. I die-cut the bird with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Feathered Friends Thinlits from Distress Black HeavyStock and Distress Watercolor card, coloured with Forest Moss and Crushed Olives Distress Oxide inks and fixed the bird in place popped up on foam squares. I added highlights to the bird with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen.
I die-cut the title from Distress Black HeavyStock twice using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Theory Thinlits, layered to create dimension and fixed to the page with Distress Collage Medium.
I applied Distress Texture Paste Opaque through the Dotted Mini Layering Stencil from Set 5.
To finish I added a Trinity Stamps Candy Apple Heart Embellishment.
