I’m using one of my wet Tissue Backgrounds here – just added a little more ink and some background stamping. Didn’t those colours turn out fab?
It’s not difficult for me to think about birds – I absolutely love them and especially at this time of year, when they sing so sweetly (and loudly) and all the summer visitors arrive – in fact, I stayed awake for the Dawn Chorus in my garden last year (3.40am) and intend to do it again this year – what a treat it was!! My son calls me ‘Bird Woman of Rainhill (where I live)’ because I buy so much birdfood and really spoil them. We always have birds in our tiny garden (unless the Sparrowhawk’s laying in wait or has just visited) and I appreciate being able to contribute a little to them when they give so much pleasure to us.
Anyway, enough waffling, here’s my Birdie entry. This is for both Sunday Stamper’s Free as a Bird Challenge (get yours in while you can) and because I noticed it last night, for Crazy Amigo, which is birds. (I’ll probably do another Sunday Stamper one, just to stay within the rules. I don’t really like combining challenges – feels like cheating…)
This one’s especially for Hels, at Sunday Stamper – lots of detail on that background layer if you click to enlarge it 🙂
This one’s just because – I sprayed a piece of card with Glimmer Mists and it was perfect for sky. I had every intention of doing more on it but decided that the simplicity suited the bird image better. I tend to forget about this bird because it was one of my own stamps but I really, really love it 🙂 I’m entering this one into the Simon Says Challenge – Things with Wings.
Words on both of these are from Stamp Camp who I’m hoping will be at Port Sunlight next weekend – I think that’s when it is – woohoo!! Can’t wait! If you live anywhere in the North West, it really is worth travelling to. It’s still mainly a Stamping show and hasn’t been taken over by papers, stickers and stuff, so it’s well worth a visit, but tickets only…
