A Unique Take on Paper Piecing

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday to You!

It is spring break here in St Louis and we finely have a wonderful sunshiny day after two days of dreariness.  I cannot wait to hit the trail this afternoon.  I was able to stamp some yesterday, being stuck inside due to the yuck weather.  I received a new toy in the mail- have been wanting a small brayer to try a simple multi colored brayered tedchnique.
That lead to me trying Distress Oxides on Craft and that lead to rainbow colors.

Well, that lead to this adorable bird image stamped over my rainbow stripes.  This has to be one of my favorite bird images- it is from Unity.
Not sure what lead me to paper piecing the birds in their color based on their position on the background, but that is where this went.  Instead of neutral birds, I have neutral, paper pieced flowers and instead of colorful flowers I have colorful, patterned birds.
So this morning I turned this into a simple card on a black card base.  I added a sentiment from SugarPea Designs. 
I love how this turned out, in all of its quirkiness.
I am linking up to several challenges~
