I've been away from my stamping room for awhile, so I am combining a few challenges. I created this weeks Featured Stamper challenge and for a few Dare to Get dirty challenges.
Here is the lovely card of Sarah's that was my inspiration Delightful silhouette
I hope you are enjoying your time in the spotlight this week, Sarah. Your gallery is absolutely full of wonderful works of art.
Here are the DTGD challenges -
DTGD13TammieE, DTGD13whippetgirl, DTGD13cullenwr, DTGD13Beate, DTGD13jmasse and DTGD13bfinlay.
I used a stencil to make my background. Sponged on soft sky, sage shadow, bravo burgundy. Next I painted the grass stamp with grass green acrylic paint and stamped over the background panel. Stamped on the sentiment with memento black ink - using my stamp a ma jig. Matted the 5x5 panel with black cardstock. Sewed around the edge. I cut out the black birds with my die cut. Popped the birds. Image panel is popped up over garden green cardstock.
This is also for this weeks teaparty - We are tickling each other. It reminds me of strolling around "Buttertubs Marsh" in the warm summer evening and seeing the black birds sitting on the tall grass and bullrushes.
