The Songbird Sings Her Song For Us

Hello Everyone
Let me stay with Crafty Individuals as I squeeze in a wee post before Sunday’s scheduled post for That’s Crafty.
This is a Crafty Individuals team post where I used one of their new stamps, CI-387on an 8″x8″ card.DIGITAL CAMERAI wanted a collage style feel to the card yet at the same time convey freedom and space so I opted for an 8″x8″ card, focusing the collage style in the lower corner and keeping the background plain. Retaining white space is something I struggle with as my fingers twitch to reach out for my Neocolor II watersoluble crayons to add some flicks but I did manage to restrain myself however I wonder if some subtle flicks would add texture and interest to that stark background.
DIGITAL CAMERAPainted text, a favoured stamping surface with fragments of lace added here and there. DIGITAL CAMERAAnother Crafty Individuals stamp is seen peeking from beneath the bird collage, the wonderful sheet music stamp.DIGITAL CAMERAA little cluster of this and that.DIGITAL CAMERAI hope you are having a lovely weekend, whether it be creative or you have other plans.
Thank You for your visit here today and for your visits this past week.

    Beautiful and the white space is striking!
    I know exactly what you mean about wanting to fill it in…
    I often lean that way myself and have just been trying my hand at some cards with open space.
    Your songbird is singing such a lovely song for us dear Lynne!
