A little birdie told me to...


Hello Everyone,  I'm here today with my DT card for our August Challenge at


 Stamping Sensations.

This month we have a lovely summer mood board to inspire you, or you can always  use the 'Anything Goes' option if you prefer. Please remember that stamping must be the main element of your project .  

I took my inspiration from the colours, the dog in a hat and the little green bird.  I blended some Distress inks onto a panel of cardstock, Stamped the dog- a Marvin lookalike with some of his habits- then the birdie and the sentiment, used my Copics to colour. It looked a bit bare so I added the stencilled leaves and a doodled border.

Head on over to the challenge blog where you will find plenty of fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT, hope you can find the time to join in this month- as always there's a lovely prize on offer for the lucky winners.

Our prizes this month are from Craft Stash, first a collection of Santoto Gorjuss girls stamps/die/stickers and second a Woodware floral stamp. Craft Stash is the fasted growing online craft store specialising in papercraft for card making, journaling, mixed media and much more.
