Feathered Friends at TIOT

We have a new challenge over at Try It On Tuesday with such wonderful inspiration from the Design Team! The theme is 'Feathered Friends'
Over the weekend I was fascinated by the way the swallows swoop so close to our caravan - I could watch them for ages.

I had already made this little wall hanging as at this time of year the swallows have well and truly arrived here in the UK.
I started by painting my board with PA Fresco paint - Sky.
Added some script stencilling using a Stencil Girl mini stencil randomly with Snowflake Fresco paint.
 I made the holes at the top with my Crop-O-Dile.
 I fussy cut the garland at the top (using the same TH set as the swallow) I chose to cut them out myself as I wanted to cut part of it off.
The flowers are from a set I have had for a while.
I added some script stencilling onto some press out diamonds painted white and then added a little more in a lighter grey to the board.
The swallow was stamped in grey and I darkened his eye and beak with a pen. 

I do hope you will enjoy this theme and be inspired to join in with a make of your choice.
The rules are here.

My 'T' post is the one before this.

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

This is incredible. I was really impressed by that stencil, because it looks like graffiti to me. Of course, I love all the fussy cutting you did in order to make this the perfect wall hanging.

Don't you just love your crop-a-dile? I know I couldn't function without mine.
