Sunday Stampers - Week 4 - Watch the Birdy

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the 4th Sunday Stamper Challenge....is it really four weeks already? I really don't know where the days are going to!!

This week I have decided to coincide the theme of the Challenge along with some products from The Artistic Stamper.

You have probably guessed from the title that the theme this week is .....Birds

I made this tag earlier in the week for Jennie as she is at a trade show this weekend. It is made from chipboard, which is totally divine to work with and is brand new and the stamp is from a new range of collage stamps she has just released.

I will be making another project later today but wanted to Blog the new stuff and the Sunday Stamper, so I cheated and combined the two!

Remember, all you need to do for this challenge is use stamping, inking, papers, ephemera etc. When you have made your work of art, please leave a comment here along with the link to your Blog or Bucket and we can all have a look at your fab creations.

Thanks for joining in peeps and I do hope that you like this challenge. *remember, if you have not got any birdy stamps, you could always improvise and use a feather stamp if you have one*

Have fun my inky fingered friends :O))

Me again! I have made another little card for the challenge this week...this time I used paper by Imaginisce and some Tim Holtz collection stamps. I coloured some card with Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Dusty Concord distress inks and then stamped the bird in black Versafine. I then stamped him again onto scrap paper and masked the first image, stamped a background that matched the paper and then matted it onto more of the fancy paper. I have only just learned how to do masking - thanks must go to Andrea, Jennie and Dan - and I am well chuffed with this one :O))
