The Usual Suspects

Good morning and a very happy (but gray) Monday. After the hot, hot, hot weather of last week, it's cool and dark today and I'm loving it! (but only for a day, ok, then it can warm up again - but not too warm, and have a breeze - but not too windy lol)
Stampotique has a new challenge, which is 'birds, and purple as the main colour' Well if that isn't a challenge I don't know what is! I like purple, and I do use it, but never as the main colour. But anyway here's my piece.

I think the combined age of the stash used in this is about 250! The sentiment is from an old Andy Skinner stencil, ( I mean the stencil is old, - or do I....) and the Viva Decor texture paste is even older. I've also had Crow Line and Quails Cube for years, but you can't keep a good stamp down!
This will be another page in my cotton rag book when I've worked out how to use my Cinch which I got from QVC in 1842 and has never been out of the box, but it seemed a good idea at the time!
Take care, and have a very happy day x


  1. Lovely and happy page, love the soft colours, too. It will look great when it is in your book. The cinch is not hard to use, you will manage it! Have a great week, hugs,

  2. Beautiful, love the variety of elements, colours and textures
    Thank you for joining the Stampotique challenge

  3. Ha, ha, I have that stencil too and also that washi tape you used (Tim Holtz I think). I love the purple and those cute birds in the circles.

    I hope the weather warms up just a tad, we are drowning in rain here. Keep safe and well. Anne xx

  4. Oh, this is adorable Sue, even the colours are really lovely (not too dark, I think I prefer lol).
    I love it, these birds are super cute, and with the words from the stencil the whole set is fun!! :D
    Hugs, and happy time whatever the weather ;-)

  5. What a fabulously intriguing creation, Sue! Your backgrounds, the triad of circles, the repeated theme - all make this a wonderful creation! hugs, de

  6. Totally love this one Sue!
    Thanks for joining us at Stampotique :)

    xx Arwen

  7. I do like this Sue, the colours are so good together.

    All the best Jan
