Today's card features a stamp from the Stamplorations set 'Big Bloom Factory' I used my Kaleidacolour 'riviera' ink pad, to stamp the 2 tone flowers, and was pleased how it turned out. The bird is from a set by Aladine 'Clear Oiseaux' stamped onto a snippet and edged with blueprint sketch di. I have followed the sketch for Stamplorations April challenge, and would also like to enter in the Things with wings linky party
Pixies Crafty Workshop and Allsorts where it is 'B for ..... ( I have blue, blooms, a bird and borders)

I have had this lovely wee stamp from CI for quite a while, and thought the bird singing was springlike!
I have embossed the background with my cuttlebug, and also used it to cut the stitched circle. I sponged both with peacock feather di. I also used copics to colour my image.
Penny Black and More - spring
Cuttlebugmania - a nice cuppa

I am slipping in at the last minute with my entry at Allsorts. This time it was to follow a sketch.

Isn't this the cutest ginger cat? It looks a little more red on the screen than in real life.
I used some stamps from 'Kevin's Gang' and masked and stamped to show the other cats behind the main image. I blended some copics to make this ginger colour, added the greeting, and doodled around the edge with a fine black pen. Layered onto a black base card.

I have used the colours for this month's Rubber Dance challenge. My background was made with shaving cream and brusho's, I tore it across the bottom, and added my stamped image (in Adirondack Espresso), which I had also torn. The brown dots were done with Liquid Pearls dark chocolate, all layered onto a white base card.

The present challenge at Paper Artsy is to use the colours blue and ochre, so this is my interpretation. I started my background using a mixture of DI's, but couldn't quite get the right colour, so I added some brusho's and Infusions, and spread the colours with a paint brush. I then embossed with a woodgrain folder. .The bird is by Tim Holtz, coloured with copics, balloons are a punch, and the words are from a Diana Wakely scribbly birds set. I will add a birthday message to the inside when I decide who to send it to
Paper Artsy - blue and ochre
Creative Fingers - anything goes
The Artistic Stamper - backgrounds
