This was a quick make to enter the Craft Stamper Challenge.
The theme was anything from any issue in 2014! I chose a simple but fab technique from the September 2014 issue which was the Stamping with Corrugated Card technique inspired by Claudia Neubacher. on page 69.
I used book pages and chalky pink and white paints to create the backgrounds using two scraps of corrugated card for stamping and a brayer. I used a sentiment stamp from Oak House Studio and a Tattered Lace die which I cut 3 times and chopped into for the branches and additional birds - love that die! The focal shape was a frame die with an aperture cut.The flowers were circles of card I cut into scalloped spirals and rolled up with a quilling tool, finally I added a few gems to bring out the purple of the flowers. Photography was a bit dodgy because I had to do this in quick spurts during the late afternoon so finished it in the dark and in a hurry, but hopefully you can see what I was getting at! Ta Suz
