You asked for more so here is more ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I am so happy you asked me to play more with my Scribbly Birds stamps lol!  Seriously they are awesome to colour and as I won the Spectrum Noir random link in May I was able to purchase the last two AquaTints colour sets and my colour genie has come out to play and won’t be put back in her bottle any time soon.  Here is my card …

A nice A6 card
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Inky Chicks Challenge Fairies &/ Wings 
#137 Texture-fied: the background paper has lots of texture from the Maimeri medium and the gems on one of the die cuts adds more texture. 
I used my Lawn Fawn ‘Dream’ sentiment
 Virginia’s View Challenge #23 Spray, Mist & Splatter

There were added bonuses to create this card the first being I got to  use the last of a sheet of background card I had created using the Dutch Doobadoo with Maimeri Glossy Gel.  The second bonus was that I cut all of the die cuts from snippets of Sheena Douglass stamping card so my snippets pile is a little smaller.  The third bonus is that I used the last of the bird embellishments that I have owned for many years (10+).  The fourth bonus is that you asked for more Scribbly Bird projects so I will be using this set for the rest of this month at least, lol, I have to admit I had assumed I had used them a lot more than I have but it turns out that I hadn’t created as many as I thought so more will be on the way soon.

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

You have used one of my favourite colour schemes here and your birds look great in purple. Thanks for joining in with our 'Let's fly Away' challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday, and hope to see you again.
