Inking, stamping, doodling and punching......what more could a girl want?
Viva Decor Paper Soft-Colour in Light Moss Green, Moss Green and Cobalt Blue.
Text stamp is Viva. Stamped over a torn paper mask using StazOn.
Foliage and berries stamp is Fancy Pants. Stamped in Olympia Green Versafine and clear embossed.

Cage and Bird (Papermania)-:
Cage is stamped onto overhead projection film using StazOn and cut out.
Bird is stamped onto card and coloured using Exquisite Inks in Fountain Blue and Garnet.

Finishing Off-:
White doodling is done with a Colourburst marker.
Flowers are copier paper coloured with Paris Trunk ink pad-Parchment. I have added gems to the centres.
Bird is coated with Distress Stickles-Rock Candy.

Ooooooh I had a whale of a time getting all inky and messy. I also shocked myself by doing all of the background straight onto the card blank. It's something I never do usually.
I didn't get to spend the whole day upstairs as you would guess if you could see my sparkly clean kitchen. I'm paying for that and the teeny bit of gardening back which was settling down is now mucho painful again prompting me to use lots of very unladylike language. Poor DD's ears had flames coming out of!!! to laugh as I don't much fancy crying.
Anyhoo.....I am having to be good and rest now so the baking I had planned for tonight is on the back burner until tomorrow.
Bye for now and thanks for visiting.


  1. Hi Sheila, sorry I've not been around very much recently. Wedding arrangements which usually involves me shooting up and down the A1, wedding makes and finaly a panic by me because I was having no success in getting an outfit have been taking all my spare time. The outfit problem has been solved today thank goodness so I can concentrate on other things a bit better now.

    Sorry you're still suffering with your back. Mine actually caused me mega problems last week for the first time in years but thankfully it's not lasted as long as yours. I do hope you get better soon.

    I love your card and can imagine the satisfaction you got from getting messy. Those paper soft colours look fab. I've had some for ages and not played with them yet. Love the pretty birde and cage.

  2. Sorry your back is still sore, just take things easy for a while even when it feels better, it will just take longer to heal it you try to do too much too soon.

    I love your card it is beautiful, the colours are fantastic

  3. Gorgeous card Sheila, love the colours and your wonderful stamping style shines through. Hope you back eases soon. Sue C x
