Birds in the Trees

This months challenge over at Buckwells Crafty Challenge is to use ribbon.  Here is my entry.



The background is made using Distress Paints and water on glossy card - I think the colours were Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar and Weathered Wood.  I also used cling film to add texture.  The main image is Birds in the Trees wooden stamp from Memory Box and the sentiment is a Penny Black wooden stamp.  All the stamping is done with black Archival.  Four black stones, some matting and layering and ribbon added on each side of the large black mat to match the pink are the finishing touches.  The pink ribbon has a touch of silver along the edges.  This is another of those stamps I have had for ages and never used and I love it!

If you can, please hop over to Buckwells  and have a look at all the fabulous DT makes and other entries.

Have a good evening and thank you so much for visiting me.  Take care.  Christine xxx

So glad you gave that stamp an airing because it is beautiful on your cling film background and those bits of ribbon are such a lovely finishing touch. Anne xx
