Your Wings Are Showing - Waltzingmouse Stamps

Good heevnin' crafty chums!

Not long back after a fab Zumba workout and a good laugh to boot - thank you Zumba Jools!

This is the third and final part of the feather projects I did for the May issue of Crafts Beautiful using Waltzingmouse Stamps.

What you need...

Card stock: lime
Patterned papers: Kraft in Color 6x6 Paper Pad - Doodlebug
Ink pad: Onyx Black - Versafine
Fine liner: black
Gel pen: white
Gems: clear

What you do...

1 With the six coloured markers, create a rainbow block of colour approximately 10cm square onto white card, blending the colours. Die cut a 7.5cm circle from it and cut in half. 

2 Stamp three large solid feathers and four small solid feathers in black ink and cut out. Arrange the feathers as shown; secure the tail feathers on the reverse. Cut a small slit on the body, push the ends of the small feathers through the slit and secure with glue. Draw a simple eye and stick a small triangle of black card to the top right.

3 Cover a white 13.5cm square blank with a slightly smaller square of yellow striped paper. Hand cut scallops along one edge of white card 9cm x 13.5cm; stick a piece of turquoise wood grain paper to the back of the scallops and trim. Adhere to the bottom of the blank.

4 Attach the bird to the white section with foam tape. Doodle some legs, a border around the edge of the blank and above the scallops with black fine liner and white gel pen. Stamp the sentiment at the top left; add a few gems to the striped section.

There are oodles of gorgeous stamp sets available from the Waltzingmouse Stamp store, click here to take you to stamp heaven!

The new issue of Crafts Beautiful (June) is out now and is jam packed with lots of lovely projects. I have a master class on water colouring, I did a simple little sail boat illustration perfect for the upcoming Father's Day. The sail boat can be found in the template section of the magazine or you can go to the Crafts Beautiful website and download it for free.

I'll sign off for now. In my next post I have a cute Cricut® Explore project to show you. Thanks for popping in, ttfn! x
