I hope you all have had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend! I've been in the garden all day, tidying and planting, of course Babs, Bren and Hattie all decided to 'help'. No sooner I plant something they come along and dig it up. The back garden looks like we're growing tubes of chicken wire.
I've got the second instalment of the feather projects I did for last month's issue of Crafts Beautiful (May) using Waltzingmouse Stamps.
What you need...
Card stock: lime
Patterned papers: Kraft in Color 6x6 Paper Pad - Doodlebug
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Baker's twine: black
What you do...
1 Starting with the Magenta marker, flick the chisel point from left to right onto white card until you have a block of colour approximately 2cm x 6.5cm. Do the next block with Mandarin, but go from right to left. Continue with the remaining colours, alternating the starting point. Allow the colours to overlap slightly.
2 With the Magenta at the top, trim the card to 9cm x 14cm so the colours run down the centre. Stamp five feathers over the colour blocks in black ink. Stamp the sentiment underneath.
3 Create a white, top fold A6 portrait blank; mat on to it a slightly smaller piece of bright green card so the top edge is in line with the fold. Attach the feather panel to the blank, again in line with the fold. Wrap two lengths of black twine around the top of the blank and tie in a bow at the left.
Don't forget, there is lots of freebies and inspiration on the Crafts Beautiful website. Check out Waltzingmouse Stamps for some truly gorgeous stamp sets. There is also a gallery showing the Design Team makes - awesome.
Okay lovelies, I'm going to say ta ta for now, but I'll be back soon with the new Incy Wincy challenge and the last part of the feather projects.
Thank you for calling by! xx :o)
