More Wings for Penny Black and More - June Challenge

For this month's Penny Black and More challenge reminder I decided to get a little inky and use some of my newer Penny Black stamps/ die.

The background was inked using  distress inks (orange marmalade, fired brick, mustard seed, peeled paint, vintage photo), then spritzed with water.
Stamps are all by Penny Black, from the sets Sprigs and Enamor. Both sets are available in my Etsy *stamp* shop.
I colored the white blooms using a Faber Castell Pitt marker.  The bird was die cut using the new die Flight of Fancy, also available in my shop. I used white card stock, then after cutting it out, I inked it using distress inks, and glittered the wings. 
Finished the card off by inking the edges using vintage photo, and adhered it onto a white card base. 

I hope you'll play along with us, if you haven't already. Don't forget you may enter up to 3 times. You can use any stamp manufacturer, as long as your focal point is hand stamped or be a Penny Black stickeroo. We have several wonderful prizes to give away!
