Birdhouse Fussy Cut

Have I mentioned how I love to sit & cut?  Well, I do. 

Keeping with this month's Challenge - "Bird's of a Feather" I used the Bird House Row stamp (H3853) & fussy cut it to make, what I think is my favorite card.  Why?  For some reason it looks almost 3-D.  I really hope you can see it in the photo.  My Photoshop died & I am waiting for a new one so the photo is not what I hoped it would be.

Here is what the stamp looks like before all the fussiness.

Can you tell how much I cut?  It really did not take that much time either.  I first stamped the image on watercolor paper using Staz-On brown ink. I colored the image with my watercolor crayons.
I cut the birdhouse from the post & used double pop dots to make it really pop off the card.  Since the top of the birdhouse looks like wire, I used a silver chalk pen to go over the lines.  I also used the silver on the barbwire on the fence.  I bent some real wire & attached it to the top of the roof since I had to cut the stamped wire off the top.
On the bottom of the fence I stamped grass (A012) so it didn't look like it was floating.  Finally, I used a saying from Unmounted Sentiments 2 (UMS7019).
