Ink.Stamp.Share Showcase...

Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink.Stamp.Share Blog Hop.  We are here to share projects we have been working on this week.

I recently purchased the gorgeous stamp set Perched in a Tree.  We have several robins visit our garden on a daily basis and I always say 'good morning Mr/Mrs Bobbin'.  It is said that 'when a robin appears, a loved one is near' and I always like to think it is mum and dad popping in to say hello!!!  I also think it is quite appropriate for the very sad news of Her Majesty the Queen's passing this week.

I had a vision for this card and wasn't really sure if it would work but once it was complete, I absolutely loved it.  I created a simple easel card and die cut the birch trees for the front.  I then created a 'backward' easel, for want of a better description, to the front of the card.  The two pieces meet and support each other in the middle.

In the same delivery I had also ordered the Soft Seedlings stamp set with the lovely sycamore leaves.  I stamped the leaves in Crushed Curry ink and using blending brushes, added some Pumpkin Pie, Mossy Meadow and a little Merry Merlot to the stamp.  I love how the two sets really compliment each other.

I used our beautiful soft watercolour pencils to colour the robin, just look at his very round full belly, must have been one of our visitors!!!

I hope you like my project today, you can see what everyone else has been making this week by clicking on the next blog button below.  Here's a quick video of how it was made.
