Sharing the Love Day #1 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well.  I managed to do a little crafting over the weekend, especially for some challenges, so I have several creations to share with you this week and here is my first one …

I said the last time I used this stamp I adore it and I think the versatility of it is fabulous!
Those cute little birds and all those great words!
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Critters & Creatures Link Up #3 at Ellibelle’s Blog
I chose to use the blue colour scheme
The Pencil Case Challenge #16 P for Pretty
Winnie & Walter Stamps Blog Share the Love Week Day 1
Featuring Felecity by Pinkfresh Studio
I was inspired by the second of Shay’s cards, seen her.  I really recommend you go take a look especially if you love your dies.  The way that Shay has used a large background die is gorgeous, unusual and inspiring.  I will be die cutting some of my dies to see how they look behind vellum or parchment

I don’t have a large background die, currently, so I got my W&W Happy die and die cut it three times onto a piece of A6 card.  I used a snippet of PP to back the die cut card then I attached a snippet parchment on top of that.  I glued my panel onto an A6 card.  I stamped the words from the W&W stamp set onto snippets of white card and glued them onto the layered panel.  I stamped the bird onto two snippets and coloured them with my Spectrum Noir ATs.  I splattered some ink onto the layered panel; I am obsessed with doing that right now.  I fussy cut the birds out and attached them onto the layered panel; I added a little sparkle with my Sakura pens and added several sequins to embellish my card.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
