MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Sunday Stamper challenge 97

This is the first time I have joined in with the Sunday Stampers challenge but this fab new stamp from Crafty Individuals fits the theme this week which is "Birds".  I stamped the whole image with Stazon and then coloured my background with Distress Inks adding droplets of water afterwards to remove some of the ink to create this gorgeous delicate background.

I then stamped the whole image again cutting out the bird segments seperately and water coloured these with various Distress inks and my trusty water pen (which I couldn't live without...what a fab tool it is).  I then added these segments over the originals with 3d foam pads.


I had originally intended to turn my finished stamped piece into a card but then I decided I liked it too much to give away.... so I distressed an Ikea photo frame which had a perfectly sized mount for my birds and now it's gonna take pride of place in my kitchen where I have decided to have my ART WALL...lol


Well I've started now so I am gonna have to fill it...lol   It will be nice to just pop in and look at my wall for inspiration when I need it... instead of having all my pieces tucked away in folders and containers and it will be sooooo colourful... which I love :D 
Have a great day
hugs
