Tweet This

Good afternoon and happy Tuesday. It's time for a new challenge over at the Lost Coast Portal To Creativity, and this time it's Tweet This - we want to see your bird projects. Here's mine.

I have a confession to make, this is the first time I've inked up this beautiful stamp, but it won't be the last!

I started by die cutting a couple of Tim Holtz frames that fit this stamp nicely.

I stamped the Kingfisher a couple of times onto watercolour card and coloured him with Distress Markers.

Then I painted the chipboard with DecoArt white acrylic, stamped randomly with the Joy background stamp and then crackled it all with crackle paste.

When the crackle was dry I used antiquing cream to define the cracks and popped up the bird and butterflies on 3d foam.
Please pop over to the Portal for more inspiration from my teamies, then join in with our challenge.
Enjoy the rest of the day, and thanks very much for looking x
