At Shopping Our Stash
we want you to "Put a Bird on it" I think that is self explanatory. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of birds everyone puts on their projects. Take a spin over to the Main Blog
and see what the rest of the design team have made. I was caught up colouring, fussy cutting and even picked out the paper and card stock then I found out I was making the wrong week, oh wow what a panic, I had to change gears really fast. Since we are shopping our stash I dug out a couple of Stampin'up retired sets, one I've use a few times but the other it's the first time I have put ink to it.
Although there are lots of layers it seems rather simple. The blossom branch didn't ink well or it could be because of the old thesaurus page too, but I'm okay with it because the bird is the focal point, and I have another birthday card for my stash.
Close up of the Robin, my white gel pen wouldn't work to accent the eye, I'll figure out something before I give it away.
Finished the inside and added some punched corners, talk about using stash, I haven't used this punch in eons but I wanted something to break up the white on white.
The stamp sets I used were Nature Walk and Easter Blossoms I have had them for many years, in fact it was back when I put the labels on the stamps and they don't stick to the block, so I tried using a lip balm over the stamp and it stuck very well. (one of Scrap and Stamp with Frenchie's tips)
Well here we are another week and another challenge, I hope you will join us for the "put a bird on it" challenge. thanks for looking today.
