Another birdie

OK who stole the weekend?

Another little birdy today. I actually made this ages ago (October last year in fact, for the Artisan show) but only recently rediscovered it in a box and hung it in my craft room :).

The stamps are PaperArtsy, the background is inked, stamped over with a map image in Distress Ink and then misted to bleed it into what looks like a fine crackle. The overstamped postmarks and splatters are PaperArtsy too. The whole thing is painted with Rock Candy for a subtle crackle (which further bleeds the Distress Ink too).

The flowers are cheap white Prima's - I always buy the white ones and just colour them to suit with sprays.

Looking like my next stamp set will be out in the next week or so - literally waiting for sign off and we are hopefully good to go. This one is my fave yet, it's lush if I do say so myself :).


  1. Very cute find. Must have been a sweet surprise. Can't wait to see the set. thanks for sharing and have a great evening. Angela

  2. Adorable - glad she's flying again!

  3. Hi Katy me again.... just to say I haven't been able to email you (I'm on a different computer than normal - at the beach), so may have to communicate next week! Sorry!

  4. Love the pic you sent me - would love to have a go for the SC. Thanks for the info, too!

  5. I like your cheery little blue bird! She's sweet! Wouldn't mind having one to keep me company in the crafting area.
