Creative Expressions - Happy Bird Day # 1


We have a new set of stamps to work with for Creative Expressions. It's a lovely A5 birdie set designed by Sam Poole

My first project uses distress inks and Cosmic Shimmer powders to create the background.

I used the little leafy swirl stamp for the background and to frame the little bird an the Spellbinder Label (Labels 8). 

I used three colours of Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders ( Dark Bronze Lustre, Bright Gold Metallic and Ancient Copper Metallic) around the edge of the card and also on the Spellbinder border. I really like the effect this gives. 

The flower was made using one of the flower dies from the Spellbinder Carnation Creations set and text paper from an old book. To colour the flower I swiped Wild Honey Distress Stain on my craft mat and spritzed well with water then dragged the flowers through it to colour. Once dry I put them together with a brad. I love the little sentiment on the stamp set to finish it off.
Be sure to check out what the other girls have been up to for lots more inspiration.
Looks like a lovely day out there this morning. So it will be in the garden today not crafting!!
Have a lovely Sunday!!
