Songbirds on Sunday

Hels has another fab challenge this week on Sunday Stampers - Birds.  Quite by chance, a couple of weeks ago I bought a fab set of Prima stamps called Songbird from the Stamp Attic and hadn't used them yet.  So the challenge was made for me, I reckon!!


I think the flash has reacted a bit with the white background, sorry! 









I took a square scalloped card mat from Craftwork Cards and distressed it with brushed corduroy DI and spritzed it with a gold pearl/tea dye reinker mix and then stamped on the music score from the same sheet.  I wish I could read music, I could have sung it to you!!




I went out into the garden and cut a small twig and stuck it to the card and stamped the bird on a scrap and coloured it before sticking it to the twig.  I found an alphabet set to make up the word songbird and spritzed that too before sticking it behind the twig.


I suspect the twig may not stay on the card very long, so I haven't mounted it up on a full card, and I couldn't have done this with the scanner so it's as well I got the camera sorted!

Happy Sunday, and here's hoping Liverpool do better this week than they did last week - so much for the lucky tshirt!
