A Little Birdie Told Me

Hello friends, It is Monday evening for me and it has been a beautiful autumn day.  I spent some of the morning out in the garden with my grandson Noah, who loves playing with the hose and kicking a ball around - at the same time!!  It is a beautiful time of year.

Speaking of beautiful - this Scribbly Birds stamp set - by Dina Wakley - I have loved it since it came out - but it was so hard to get.  At the recent Scrap Girls Retreat one of the ladies happened to have a set for sale, as she had ordered two, by mistake.  My dear friend knew I was after it and got in very quickly for me - one happy stamper here!!

The image has been stamped using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, then coloured using Versafine Ink in Vintage Sepia (love this shade of brown) and Memento Luxe in Rose Bud, using sponge daubers. 

The coloured bird has been hand cut and popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares onto white card that has been sponged using the same inks used to colour the bird then layered onto a precut cardbase.  The sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous Crazy Talk set.  Postmarks have been randomly added, along with Washi Tape and Linen Thread.  The precut base has been cut/embossed using 5x7 Matting Basics A Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator and the Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
