Birds in the sky .....

I have had this song, Feeling Good by Nina Simone, playing in my head for days, so thought maybe I should create something with it.

I used one of my all time favourite chipboard pieces for this card, NAT-295, one of the larger birds from the set of four. I coupled this with one of the hearts I cut off from BOR-151.
 This is a mixed media background. The bird and heart are painted with various acrylic paints,clear embossed and doodled :
I love trying different techniques on the chipboard pieces and coloring them in different ways. 
If I don't like the end result, I just paint over it, the chipboard stands up well to layers and saturation by various inks and paints.
Thanks for stopping by x
