Sheena's new bird stamps

Our Sheena is on the telly on Friday at  11am , 4pm and 7pm on Create and Craft. With some brand new stamps. I have been waiting for one of the sets  for a very long time, I love Kingfishers, so I was very happy to be making these samples. I was also taken out of my comfort zone as my fellow Inkoids and I  were asked to make some 3D items. I do have a lot of items in my craft stash for altering, so now was the time to get them out.
Over the next four days I show what I made, but don't forget  to check out the other Inkoids  bogs for more ideas, there is a link on  Sheena's website www.sheena.tv.

I painted over the frame with white gesso then sponged over the top with  a mixture of two different colour silks. After drying I added some guilding  wax around the edge.
The birds were stamped and embossed then painted with a mixture of Distress inks and the Ice Silk.
I did the same with the branch and leaves, those stamps came from Sheena's previous ranges.
The wording , also in the new sets was stamped and embossed in gold on to some cream card, I tore around the edge and then inked.
These baby birds are really cute, take a  closer look at there facial expressions , I bet you will smile.......
Happy Crafting
