Have you heard......about the bird?

Good morning, peeps!

I thought I'd show you a couple of the images from the other A5 stamp sheet from wor Sheena today and here he is, the UK's most colourful bird:

and he's generally in a rather colourful background!  The other images come from 'A New Leaf' and 'Always Floral'.  There's plenty of bling in evidence on this one, courtesy of the Luminarte Silks and H2Os.  The latter I sponged over Distress Inks in various shades of green to create the main background.

The kingfisher himself was coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens and I coloured him before I had the pencils.  I love colouring and both of these products are excellent but I am so enjoying the pencils - expect to see them featured in future posts!

Here's a quick peek at another kingfisher but this time he's dressed up!

I've been wanting to make a shaped gatefold card with a window like this for ages and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  Here's the card open:

If you want to know how the card was made, please watch Sheena's shows at 11.00 am, 4.00 and 7.00 pm tomorrow, Friday 6 June on Create and Craft TV and you may just see the lady herself demoing this card!

Thanks for looking today.

The early bird catches the worm

Good morning, peeps!

Wor Sheena is launching some new stamps on Friday 6 June on Create and Craft TV and here's a canvas I created using one of them:

I made this birdie a chaffinch (I was so pleased when my friend Fiona recognised him) and he's just one of the images on the two brand new A5 sheets of designs.  I've also used other stamps that will be featured on the show along with some wonderful Pebeo and Luminarte products.  It's a shame you can't see the iridescence in this picture.

Do tune in on Friday - there are shows at 11.00 am, 4.00 and 7.00 pm and there are sure to be wonderful demos.

See you there!
