A bird does not sing...

...because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. Chinese Proverb

I thought this was a rather apt quote to go along with my two inchies for Something Competely Different. I was too busy last week to take part, so I am playing catch up. Last week's prompt was 'Oriental' and this week it was 'Birds'

The image is a from Art Freebies, background paper Papermania Touch of Teal, stamp is from the Tanda Stamps oriental set.
I went a bit more arty-farty for the bird stamp and 'swiped' the card with Ranger Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Milled Lavender and Worn Lipstick before stamping the birdie (Crafty Secrets - thanks Joanne!) with Peeled Paint and then once dry overstamping in Sepia Versafine. I'm quite pleased with that, given that it took me all of about 5 minutes lol!
