Ohhhhh squeal what an exciting week, after a few months break due to moving I re~newed my subscription to my favourite magazine Simply Cards & Papercraft
(I had to cancel so I was not led into temptation to craft lol)
I am now fully crafting again and have so many ideas and new things I want to try.
Now one thing I do love is using shrinkles
( I am very new to this but can see it becoming addictive)
When I saw the freebie's on the mag I immediately grabbed the shrinkles pack!
Talking of freebies........where to start?? Two Die's (bird and wing) ~24 stamps (I counted them twice so I hope I got it right) and then prima exclusive paper collections , beautiful papers and stunning toppers, I could not wait to start crafting.
I started making the tag first ~ layering up the different papers ,so lush I really did not want to cut them up ! I inked around using distress ink shaded lilac
I used one of the toppers in the center, now here is the fun part
I stamped and die cut the bird onto shrinkles and coloured him in using Polychromo Pencils and then set to work with my heat dryer , I then had the most cutest tiny bird in the world, I stamped the branch , flowers, Love sentiment and his feet using Memento dew drop ink
Die Cut a couple of flowers using another of the papers
and finished of with a few Nuvo jewel drops and a slice of ribbon.
I then set about my card , starting with a 6x6 card blank
I layered up the same papers as the tag
Changing a few ink colours this time I added more stamped detail to the bird and decided to keep him at his original size
Flowers were made the same as before and using two of the stamps * happy bird-day*
