Birds of a Feather

Hello again and welcome to my inspiration for our new challenge at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog where for the next fortnight, our theme is Birds of a Feather and I'm sure you can guess how much I love this one!


I chose to fill another page in my A5 size journal as I've been itching to ink up my new Carabelle Studio image - it's called Un Oiseau sur mon Journal so how could I resist!

My bacground is made with Distress inks - Squeezed Lemonade and Salty Ocean - which I swiped on the page having first brushed on water so that I could achieve slightly softer colours. I then used several Dinky Stencils - Distressed Harlequin, Chevron Background and Punchinella with Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio DIs to add a random pattern.

I stamped the bird image on my page with Archival Watering Can ink and added some colour with watercolour pencils. I then added further stamping with the same ink with some more Carabelle Studio stamps - my absolute favourite Journal du Jour, the star border from Taches et Background and the lovely text from Every Bird. I carried on until I was happy with the layered effect.

I hope you can enter as there's a prize of a voucher for the online shop for the randomly drawn winner and the array of goodies in the shop is just amazing!

Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
Fliss xx
