better late than never!

I'm late with my DT submission for the Make My Monday challenge which this week has been chosen by the fabulous Fliss. She wants to see:
 Bright and Cheery Colours

The tag is waste from practising with die cuts! I have a new machine, an Xcut Express, I love it! up until now I've been a reluctant user of die cutting machines, even though I had two... now I have three! but the Xcut is by far my favourite and easiest to use!
 Pink Paislee: spring jubilee
Hot Off the Press: vintage and floral images, batch 5917.
SU: French Foliage
Hot off the press: freebie feather stamp and die
Versafine:Onyx Black
 Distress inks: squeezed lemonade.wold honey,scattered straw,salty ocean and tumbled glass.
Martha Stewart; Hydrangea punch.
Kraft card
Twine: which I tried to colour slightly with DI's.... not sure it worked all that well :-(

 Hope you can join us in this lovely challenge, it's not too late you have until Saturday evening.
 Enjoy the rest of your week

Winter Birthday

Good morning from a very dark, blustery, wet Cheshire! a perfect day to spend in the craft room. It might mean I manage to get ahead with craft projects instead of always being on the last minute!
The challenge theme this week at Make My Monday is
 Winter Birthday
 The image is the waste ink from the flip side of the stencil placed onto thick cartridge paper.

Crafty Products :)
Dream Weaver Tree stencil.
Various spray inks
Sixxix alterations: tiny tabs and tags
The Artistic Stamper: Birds of a Feather: bird and sentiment
Hot Off the Press: birthday sentiment
Ranger Archival Ink: coffee.
American Crafts: Twine.
The stencilled image after being sprayed... I'll be using this on something , some day! :-)

I scribbled some spots and splats to ground the bird but not sure it looks right.
 I've now added some water to blend the colours... what do you think?
Thank you for looking, enjoy your day.
