Birds/ Animals

Good morning every one.. Its week 45 at Make My Monday and still following Caz's Men and Boys theme we would like to see Birds/Animals on your projects
here's mine
I used a Stampedous Jumbo Songbird rubber stamp. It is an image of a blackbird singing.... I know my bird is pretending to be a blue tit but as a blackbird my card looked a bit dull :o) (see below) and I hadn't used the lovely poem included in the stamp or any thing relating to a songbird!... that might be because i didn't read the package title or the poem... would've helped with the design if I had! lol plus it was last minute (it usually is) because the project  I was working on  (altered box) didn't work out even with the help from my lovely craft buddies at the Cubby Hole... thank you guys ... I will finish it!

Image as a Blackbird

I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black then painted over in places with DI Shabby Shutters and some Whispers Strokes. I swooshed the colours onto my craft mat, sprayed lightly with water and picked up with a paint brush. I used DI Stormy Sky around the image.
The little greeting is from Stampingallday
  I know I say this every week.. but I do look forward to seeing your projects and don't forget there is a prise from Marianne Designs for the over all winner.
Enjoy your day... even in the rain :o)

Loving your new card Suzi and I agree the bird looks better coloured it brings the colour palette of the card together beautifully. Annette x

Your card leapt out at me this morning Sue! I love every detail - the stamping on the textured card stock, the colours (we can just say it's a fantasy bird!), the green twine, the label... Gorgeous! Vicky x

PS We've got bright sunshine in Buckingham this morning but not for long I'm sure!

This is so beautiful, love the effect you have achieved painting with the distress inks. Suzanne x

Aquarius said...

Yes I prefer the colourful version of the bird - could do with cheering up on this very wet grey Monday morning.

Sue said...

Identity crisis or not, this bird is very beautiful. It is a lovely stamp, gives that watercolour feel. I think we are going to have rain too!

Your bird is gorgeous Sue and so is the card. I'm a little sad because we had a pair of blackbirds nesting in the wisteria and when mum finally left the nest for a minute the blooming wood pigeons got to it so no babies to look forward to and the nest is deserted :0/. It's chucking it down here ........... again, lol!
