Birds & Bees at Fashionable Stamping Challenge



Hi folks, time to tell you about our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and it's all about 'Birds and Bees'
So, as long as we see Birds or Bees or even both, then that's great, but remember - We especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that this must follow the format of the theme.
We are again sponsored by Flonzcraft who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.  As usual my very talented teamies have some wonderful creations to show, so please pop over to the main blog here to see and check out all the details.
It's been a long while since I've had time to join in with Tim's Tags, although I still check out all the details, however when I saw the technique this month, I just had to have a play.  I used a  Memory Box stencil and lots of 'pretty' inks and 'stamped' onto water colour card, loved he effect, so you will be seeing this technique again!  I stamped the TH bird, sentiment and grasses in Black Archival.  and to contrast with the soft shades of my main background, I used the same stencil and inks with a Distressing tool for a more precise look.  I kept the card 'embellishment free' as I always think this sentiment deserves a 'less is more' look, don't know what you think.
I am entering this at:
  That's Crafty - Birds
  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday- Stencils
  City Crafter -It's for the Birds (Use a bird)

Thank's for visiting and I hope you are having a great weekend.
