I love this bird stamp from Inkadinkado, I don't usually buy red rubber stamps (I'm a clear stamp fan!) but this one I just couldn't resist!! So it was my inspiration for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge - White and Bright, create a card or project using white or cream and one other color! I also used Ros's sketch this week at the City Crafter Challenge blog, it was such a fab sketch to work with!
Aren't they the sweetest birds, such a great illustration. I saw some pink striped fabric in Country Living magazine and it had a gorgeous deep pink image over-printed onto it. I just happened to have this striped pink paper from (the oh so gorgeous!) Sugar Blossom paper pack by Quirky Twerp at the Digichick, so I stamped my birdies using Memento Rose Bud ink over it.
I made the big flower from felt, I drew a simple petal shape to use as a template and cut out the felt. At the base of each petal I did a couple of stitches and threaded them all together, a little circle of felt glued to the back, pearl on top and voila! The pretty lace is from a lace and doily swap a while back. I stamped the scripted text in the background using a Prima clear stamp.
Stamped simply on a double ended Spellbinders tag is a sentiment from the Sweethearts stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. There's a little more lace there and a some pink and white Baker's twine from The Ribbon Reel. I quite like how this one turned out! : )
Don't forget to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Shabby Girls! They're such a talented bunch!
