Welcome to the weekend - Saturday post!

Hi there readers,

I hope you are all enjoying a magnificent weekend? Thought it was time to ink up a set of stamps (Crazy birds mini's) and dies I've had in my collection for a while - it looks like only the bird on the right had seen ink before!

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in red and Costco double sided + white die cut birds
  • Kaisercraft mini grid and Film Edges images stamped using Memento grey flannel ink
  • Sizzix framelets 561218 "Bird Talk" birds die cut and then stamped (along with sentiment) using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Faber Castell polychromos pencils used to colour images, blended with Sansodor and paper stumps before running through my Xyron sticker maker to apply a dry glue evenly to the entire surface of the birds especially the delicate parts like plumage and legs.
  • Paper Artsy splatter (from HTPX01) stamped using Versafine satin red ink

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Cute Card Thursday - challenge No. 513 - SOMETHING FUN
  2. Crafting With An Attitude - challenge No. 35 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Colour Crazy Challenge - challenge No. 3 - ANYTHING (hand coloured) GOES

that surely is cute. I made one with one layer in mind and then realized that a bunch of flowers isn't the cute for the cute bit..hehe...

These are both great Kathy, and love the prettily coloured mini Crazy Birds on the ATC and love the red splatters and frame which complement one another really well, and then the cute dragon which is such a fun image and the pink, lilac and orange colours suit it perfectly. x

I love seeing the contrasting styles of card - the first has great depth with all the elements coming together beautifully. The second is so Clean and Simple. But they both have an element of fun - which reflects your personality too, I think.

Super cute dragon, Kathy, and great colouring. Thanks for mentioning Sansodor, I've been looking for Gamsol but this looks like a great alternative for my polychromos.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
