Whilst away from home I was really missing my crafting, although I did manage to do a little knitting - well those who know me understand that I can't survive without something craft-related with me wherever I go. I had a nice break away but was more than happy to get back to my stash and do a little cardmaking (and sewing) again.
This little card was created using a stamp I bought recently and is one of the DoCrafts Urban range of stamps. It's a cute bird but quite large - the base card is 5 x 5 inches to give you some idea of the size of the image.
I stamped the bird onto the base card and again on some patterned paper, then I inked just the wing area of the image and stamped onto a scrap of coloured cardstock. After cutting out the body of the bird stamped onto the paper I attached it over the stamped image on the base card. I do like the faux stitching around the edges of the image and if you are a stitcher, it would be really easy to create a template for applique using the stamp.
To finish off the design I added touches of Stardust Stickles and stamped a sentiment (from a SU! set) vertically in the bottom righthand corner.
Thanks for popping by to check out today's project, hope you like it. I'll be working my way around the blogs I visit regularly to catch up on posts I've missed whilst having no internet access, during the next couple of days hopefully.
