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.
