Hello and welcome to the Making Room... This morning being Monday :) it's time for another challenge at Make My Monday. This week the lovely Rosie has chosen a fabulous theme which is ...
This is a little collage using four stamps from:
Oxford Impressions: Come Fly with Me: feather
Stamping Up: French Script and Post mark
Local King Rubber Stamp: Chicks5: little bird: I cut out part of his tail with a craft knife so that it appeared over the feather.
The Artistic Stamper: Birds of a Feather: Sentiment
Versifier : Vintage Sepia
Faber Castell: Big Brush...... thumping technique.
Link to YouTube for technique: I saw this on one of last weeks entrants... this is my first attempt, I will be trying it again with a less dense stamp and "thump" a bit more to achieve more colour.
I snipped around the edge of the feather to give it a ruffled look... mind you I forgot to do this before I shaped and adhered it to the card with silicone glue I only realised this morning when I was about to take photographs. It was too dark when I'd finished last night... the lights not brilliant this morning either.
Confession time! this is the second card I made for this challenge... when I was downloading the first one I realised I'd done one very similar last year.. I thought oh no that's boring ! so did the one above!
here's the copy cat
Now for some BIG news
I'm moving house.... My home sold very quickly... less than a month on the market! I thought it took months/years even these days for property to sell! So you can imagine my surprise and shock when the estate agent rang with the offer from the first and only viewer! I'm totally unprepared, thought as I say I'd have months and months to sort out and declutter... I'm downsizing. So all this means that I wont be blogging much... not that I have been doing much blogging for the last year due to sad family events.
I am hoping to continue with MMM as and when I can but because most of my stash will be packed away... dreading it!!! my contribution to the design teams inspirational pieces will mostly be clean and simple.
Have a lovely week and see you soon

Bye for now ... I should be de-cluttering!!!
