it's Inspiration time over st STAMPlorations and I've gone for a little vintage-y distressed card working with the Trendy Birds 2 and Mixed Media Elements set. It is a card inspired by our garden ... it is just soooo full of birds, and they seem to be incredibly tame too ...
I started off by stamping the bird in Early Espresso and colouring it with Promarkers before giving it a coat of Mod Podge which adds a little texture and gives it a hand painted feel too. It also acts as a form of resist that you can blend over lightly which I did using Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake inks before stamping the script in Sahara Sand, distressing the edges and adding a little spritzing and highlights with a white gel pen. To finish I attached a die cut and button with twine.
Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog for more inspiration and to leave a comment for your entry into their prize draw.
That's it from me, I shall be back tomorrow.
Have a lovely day!
