Day 2 Sheena's new stamps

Here is the second piece I did for Sheena's show ,that's on this Friday on Create and Craft.

The frame was from Every Crafts a Pound, who are at most of the craft shows around the country.
I embossed some pieces of black card and  then cut them up into small squares . Then randomly glued  them on to the frame, once  dry I applied some gilding wax. The bird was stamped and embossed and then painted with Distress inks mixed with Ice Silk. The flowers and leaves were just painted with Silks. Then centre panel ,  a piece of cream card was inked with Brushed Corduroy then stamped  using the wording with second generation ink. Then finally with  Black Onyx Versafine in the middle.
Think when I get time, I might have to repeat this, maybe in different colours, to have in my craft room.
Happy Crafting
