Crazy Birds...

I couldn't help myself...
Last week I splurged on craft supplies. Specifically, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous 'Crazy Bird' Stamps and their accompanying dies...as well as the 'Crazy Talk' and the 'Crazy Thoughts' stamps.

To be honest....I didn't even try to stop myself! 

WHY???

These stamps are fantastic! I didn't really like them at first either...but then saw Kristina Werners take on it and fell in love with that sad bird face and sentiment!

They were pretty easy to colour too...I don't particularly like my prisma pencils (not because they're not good, but because I'm never really happy with my colouring technique when using them...) but they worked so well with these birds on kraft card. It took probably 5-10mins max to colour each one!

Enjoy! 


I missed your birthday card: PC 938, PC929, PC932, PC 956, PC930, PC 927



It’s your special day card: PC 922, PC923, PC1002, PC 916, PC918, PC938




I'm working on a few more and will share them later in the week...but for now happy crafting!

Entered into Simon Says Stamp Monday (ombre) and Wednesday (anything goes) Challenge.

Published plus 2 cards.

Super Excited :)

I've been published in Scrap n' Art Online Magazine! Whoohooo... :)

Today I'm sharing 2 cards I've created using the left overs from Paper Flourish August Kit. This kit uses Kaisercraft time machine collection. At first I was dreading this kit - brown and masculine, not a theme or colour scheme I'd normally choose to create with. But it was a nice challenge and now I have a few male cards in my collection.

Here is the first:



and the second card:

 




It's hard to see in the photos but I used Kaisercrafts alphabet die cut and spelled out the alphabet - used the negative to create a almost camouflaged background.

Thanks for stopping by!
