Spring is in the air

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your comments on my previous posts.

I am still working my way through some of the samples I recently made for Crafty Individuals.  The majority of the samples have been featuring their new super duper bird stamps which are all now on the CI website if you want to check them out.

For the topper, I coloured with 350gm water colour paper/card with diluted Distress Inks and stamped the image. I took out the background colour from the stamped image using a damp paint brush and then painted the image with inks. I mat and layered the pieces to finish the card.

For me, the beauty of these stamps is that they do all the work. They are a delight to stamp with and so much fun to colour.

Crafty Individuals Stamps: (Maria Kitano) Blue Bird With Branch And Berries CI 505.
Crafty Individuals Backing Papers Floral Festival.

That’s all from me today. Thank you for looking.

Take care,

    Gorgeous birdy Flo!
    It really has been springlike lately, so glad I can get out and enjoy it now that my cold has gone! I was going mad indoors last week!
    Hope all’s well with you both,

      Thank you Ali. Pleased you are feeling a bit better. Wasn’t it wonderful last week.I saw that you had been out walking. It really felt spring was here. We even made some plans to do some work out in the garden but then it turned a bit naff today. Looks like some nice weather coming through next week. Can’t wait. Have a great weekend. Hugs Flo xx

    I’m with you; they are beautiful and I believe the whole DT had so much fun colouring these…and so great to see this one is again so different from the other makes! And so beautiful again! Love the way the bird pops through the bright colouring!
    (I decided to put these birds away for a month and after that I am allowed to play with them again 🙂 Thanks for the sunshine; it helped and brightened the day! Seems we get a sunny-warm -for-the-time-of-the-year-weekend! Good that I have time to go out biking or walking… Hope you have a fin weekend planned too! Hugs, Gerrina

      Thank you so much Gerrina. You know, I thought exactly the same thing when I saw yours and everyone’s amazing samples. Lots of fun with these stamps. I must admit when I was making up the samples they were hard to put down so I understand you having to put them away for a month 🙂 🙂 Pleased you got the sunshine!!! Have a fantastic weekend. Hugs Flo xx
