Julie and i we both lucky enough to receive a book and stamp each to use in our creations Thanks Malcom and Jean.



For the card



I cut some paper from the pad and layered it on to black card stock and mounted it on to a square card blank , stamped the stamp on to white card stock with black ink then sponged little spots of colour around the flowers and leaves then smudged black ink around the edge then mounted it on to black card stock and mounted it to the card slightly off center.



The Little Bird House



The little Bird house has been sitting around for a while now so i thought it would fit into the nature theme perfectly. I covered it with papers from the pad then inked the edges in black. for the roof stamped the stamp twice on to white card with ink purple ink, I cut the card so i had the top half of the image for one side of the roof and the bottom half of the image for the other side. stuck it to the roof and smudge black ink around the edges. lastly i cut a tiny Butterfly from one of the papers in the book and added it to the front with foam pads.
