A RedLead stamp I have become very fond of is the sweet, Bird Defined. The bird is not only really sweet, it is also a generous size.
A few months ago it came into my head that I would like to create a few cards with this stamp for Stampington & co’s Take Ten. In actual fact they were published in the sister publication, The Stampers’ Sampler (Oct/Nov/Dec).
I am sharing two of the four cards. All of the cards feature Bird Defined and Bird Poetry which can be purchased direct from RedLead.
The cards were created with a cohesive look not only featuring the same stamps but the same colours and items gathered to adorn each card and with vintage French book text used as the stamping surface, after a wash of Gesso.A teeny tag. I wanted to include a dash of colour and it was by chance that I spied this piece of ribbon which worked well with the paint colour used on the corrugated cardboard.
The Sweetest Songs
The merest hint of blue paint along the top edge of the card.
Another wee tag adorns this card along with a gathering of painted burlap, twill ribbon along with a button and twineBeing published is something I never take for granted. I am well aware that when I sit making a card(s) or any nature of artwork that all I can do is enjoy the process, beyond that it is simply outwith my control what will catch their eye at Stampington & co. I am so happy that they liked all four of the cards because I so enjoyed creating this little collection. It is never a chore to work with beautiful stamps.
Thank You for your visit to this blog post. Your visits are something else I never take for granted. I know how lucky I am to have you take the time to stop by and say hello.
