Curtain Call Challenge--Birdhouse

I'm playing in the latest Curtain Call Challenge--Birdhouse. Love the inspiration pic!

And it's a good excuse to use Poppystamps' Brevilla Houses. I love this die!
I was tempted to cut the houses apart and scatter them, but decided to leave it as is.
I colored the tops of the houses with Distress inks--sometimes two colors--
and blended them with water towards the bottom. After the piece was dry
I spattered on white ink to tone down the colors a bit.

I popped up the houses on light gray card stock and added a scrap of
striped gray paper to mimic the wallpaper in the photo. The card was
finished off with the Paper Smooches sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
