Bird Crazy is here!



Oh I was so excited when the postman came on Monday and delivered my new stamps - I just had to have a play with them!

I decided to make a little wall hanging. The panels were gesso'd and then distress paints marbled onto them. I then stencilled some extra DP using a bubbles stencil - although this is quite subtle now as I wanted to take the background colour back a little and added some watered down gesso.
I stamped and water coloured (with distress inks) the little birds and fussy cut them out. I added glossy accents to their eyes and sat each one on some driftwood.

Here are some close ups:




I would like to enter the following challenges.

Have a lovely day and thanks for visiting

  17. Nikki, this is just so adorable! I kind of passed over these when I first saw them (stamps), but you have really done an incredible job "selling" them to me! Very creative idea to use the letters like that, and fabulous coloring. Tweet!
