Is it a bird, is it a boy no its Super Bird boy.....

Morning All 

Thought I would show you my latest card that I have been working on....

I have made the background paper using watercolour paper with a pad of coloured inks

Dragged the ink pad over the paper.... love the way it has given texture to the 

Used Clarity Stamp Boy Bird to stamp the boy image across the paper using 
black archival inks

Added an AlteNew Label sentiment...tried several different colours 
but ended up with black.

I really like the way I can ink up the sentiment with different colours on white card
it makes the words pop.....

I have used 2 different papers the one I made and the green backing paper.

I so love making my own background papers.

Yesterday I was working with Ken Oliver Burst powders and Brusho
powders....great fun. Will show my results tomorrow.

But for today

I would like to enter it for the following


I had a nice time out in the garden yesterday - weeding 

Mrs Pheasant is still strutting around the garden but I do not have 
much hope for those little chick :( 

But that is nature and I did think about making a pen for them and raising them 
myself but then I would be taking control of something that 
nature has to deal with by its self. 

So here again is that photo of them just hatched. 

Thank you for popping over and hope you have a lovely day.

Wishing you well in all that you do today.
