After being involved with creating samples for PaperArtsy, for what were at the time, new releases, two sets designed by Sara Naumann. One of the sets was ESN15 and for the samples I played around with the bird, in particular using his wing to form a flower. I wanted to play around further with that wing, the following cards are the result of that playtime. They had gone completely out of my mind until they made an appearance in the summer issue of The Stampers’ Sampler.
Bird stamps are amongst my favourites although he is more whimsical than what I usually ink up.The wing was begging to be made into a daisy style flowerand tulips!The backgrounds are heavy in texture with Grungepaste and Fresco paint,
with an ESN handwritten script stamped here and there along with circles stamped with Frescos.The wing makes another appearance!A lone daisy.Looking at the cards after all this time, I wish I had included a sentiment, even just a word. At the time I played around with a stamped sentiment and remember ruling against the addition as I wanted the background to be seen and I could not settle on placement of words/sentiment but now I look at each card and they are all lacking “something”.Stamping with paint brings another wonderful layer of interest to mixed media backgrounds.
The final card sees the birdie making a return appearance.Making my own flowers allowed the freedom to create slight variations.Thank you to The Stampers’ Sampler for their feature.
Also, thank you for visiting this blog post. I tend not to mention my life beyond crafting but I wanted to explain that health matters are hindering me from visiting your Blogs and other on-line activity but I am trying to build up my on-line time and sure do hope to get “back on track” soon.
Thank you for being so loyal.
