Stampavie and More - "Birds"

Hello everyone.

The weather has cooled down a bit which means my craft room is slightly less like a furnace and I can stay in it for more than 5 minutes. For some reason it is the hottest room in the house, usually this is a good thing with the British weather!

I've just received some new stamps from Funky Kits and, of course, when you get new craft goodies you have to play with them straight away.

Here's a card I made using the Gorjuss Girl "A Little Bird Told Me". I'm going to enter this in the Stampavie and More challenge where the theme this week is "Birds".

Here's what I used to make this card:

Stamp: Gorjuss Girl "A Little Bird Told Me"
Colouring medium: Distress inks - Faded Jeans, Pine Needles, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye and Mustard Seed; Stickles "Diamond" on bow/sash on dress and on bird's wing; Sakura white Souffle pen for highlights
DP: Brenda Pinnick, Die Cuts with a ViewTools: EK Success "Corner Adorner punch"; Nestabilities Petite Scalloped Circles (Lge)
Embellishments: Avec flat back pearls

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We've been to the park this afternoon and my lovely dog submerged herself in all the gunk at the bottom of the stream - she's lying next to me right now and I can tell you the smell is not pleasant! I think she'll be taking a trip to the bath very soon.

Thank you for visiting my blog and looking at the my card. I really appreciate the lovely comments I have been left recently and love reading them.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Clare xx

Hi Clare, this is a very sweet card, like the soft greens and as you say new stash means it 'has' to be tested straight away.

Pleased your RAK arrived.

Why do dogs always pick the smelliest gunk to roll in?
Your card is lovely and fresh with those colours Clare. I have that Brenda Pinnick BP and your card has inspired me to get it out and use it.
Your little birdie is so cute too.
Glad your crafting room has cooled down.
