Have Feathers Will Fly

Morning all, another bright, hot, sunshiny day here in the East of England!  Regular readers will be all too well aware of my aversion to extreme temperatures, it makes my fur wilt, so imagine my horror to find the thermometer already at 33C in the craft room at 9.00 this morning.  Icky!!

So, flinging open the windows and putting the ceiling fans on I had a quick play with this week's LESS IS MORE challenge for a One Layer Card featuring Fur or Feathers.


I bought this set of Woodware bird stamps some while ago on a whim, thinking I would do so much with them, but I confess that this is their first inking!  I've used three of the six birds in the set and added a simple Hero Arts sentiment.  A light splash of colour with my FlexMarkers and done.

I'm not particularly happy with the composition of the card but will enter it anyway.  I will try and find the time to make another, perhaps a furry one instead.

Whatever you are up to today, I hope it's fun.

Hugs, Sxx

It is so serene. The pastels and the line stamps look perfect together.

What a change between Saturday's sunshine and heat, and today though! I looked like a drowned rat just putting the bins out this morning.

Don't get too wet!
