Whoohoo! Two projects and posts in one day ...................

.............. unheard of in this neck of the woods, lol!

I was doubly inspired by the PaperArtsy design team this week as Clare Lloyd had shown us three lovely projects and Joanne Wardle returned with a guest spot too.  As I loved both their cards I decided to take bits from each and made a card.

This is Clare's card and this is Joanne's if you want to pop over and see which bits I pinched ;D.  I'm quite chuffed because I finally managed to ink up one of my lovely Darcy stamps which have been waiting patiently to be used. I've also used the little birdies from the Squiggly Ink stamps and the sentiment is from the same set Joanne used on her card.  I've coloured everything with Fresco paints and layered the little birds giving them a bit of shaping before sticking to the card.  Hope you like it!






Sorry the photos aren't quite up to standard but I had to take them using my craft light because it's almost dark here now.

Thanks to the PaperArtsy DT this week for their fab inspiration.  If I'd had time I reckon I could have gone on for quite a while with projects they had kick started.  Perhaps I'll keep the ball rolling if boring stuff doesn't get in the way ............. like the ironing I should have done today, lol!

EDIT : I forgot to actually say that I'm entering this in the PaperArtsy Challenge, lol!

Hugs

Delightful with the way you used elements from both projects - those little birds are a real delight. I hope no-one is wearing wrinkly clothes!
Glad you had some time for creating though.
