Happy Sunday! Can you believe I completely forgot to blog on Friday? After a tiring week I was focused on getting my scheduled post for Saturday sorted and Hubby was wanting help with something and so it fell out of my brain. I was tucked up in bed by 8.30 on Friday, although I did stay awake long enough to watch the second episode of Corrie. I totally did not see that plot line coming!
I sat down yesterday to have a play with some new Imagination Craft stamps as they'd had a fab offer recently with the decoupage stamps at just £2 each. I may have bought several...
I used the birdhouse stamp on the above 6x6 card and stamped on Sheena's stamping card in versafine and then coloured it with distress reinkers.
I cut out the image and mounted it with foam tape (well, I've got to use it up somehow) on the card blank. I then drew two frames with a black fine liner pen, crossing them over in places and colouring in the overlaps with a pale aqua spectrum sparkle pen. Then, well, I got a bit carried away and drawing on inspiration from the image added leaves, squiggles and dots, again using a green spectrum sparkle pen for the leaves.
I also coloured the decoupage stamp hanging basket in the same way and doodled the border, only this time rather than the swirls I added some tiny dots of pink stickles as well as adding some to the centre of the flowers.
