Little Birds - Stamping & Colouring

Hello Blog Readers

Yesterday I went into my craft room, with all the good intentions of giving it a good sort out but I got side tracked and ended up making these two cards instead.

The first card,  I have used the following items:

Large Blue Tit - Clarity stamp
Small Blue Tits - Clarity stamp
Bird Feeder - Clarity stamp
Tree Branch - Clarity stamp
White card - I used Clairty Stamps 'Theuva card'
You can also buy the masks from Clarity Stamps for the blue tits, which saves a lot of cutting out, as you can use them over and over again.

To stamp the images I used Archival ink pad - Jet Black.
To colour back ground I used Adirondack ink pad - Meadow, Lettuce and Stonewash
Christine Emberson sells these and other ink pads in her shop and on her website

To colour in the birds I used Spectrum Noir colouring pencils and a silver 'Sharpie' pen for the wire on the feeder.

I mounted the card onto some green paper I had in my stash.

For the second card I used the following 
Square image from Imagination Crafts Decoupage Stamp Set - Birdhouse - The set comes with a little branch, which I used to stamp around the card. 
Spectrum Noir colouring pencils
Adirondack ink pad - stonewash
Stencil brush to give a hint of blue in the back ground.  
Again, I mounted the card onto some green paper, which I already had in my stash.

And so the craft room was not sorted - maybe one day - but I enjoyed making these cards.

Hope you  like them, come by again soon
