A little C&S offering

Hi everyone
Thankyou for everyones comments on my previous post it's lovely to know that you follow my journey not just a particular genre that I create and as such my blog will contain a variety of painted, inked,sewn,stamped and anything else that takes my fancy type of creations.
My first love is however rubber stamping which started me on my creative journey several years ago and this piece is just a C&S piece to get me back into my creative zone this year.
The coloured circle came from the fact I was cleaning acrylic paint from my craft mat with an old credit card and I thought what if I then run the credit card, with all its paint scrapping on, across a piec of card, which is how I created that effect. I then cut a 3" circle from it and another circle in a blank piece of cardand inserted it in. the birds have also been die cut using the same paint dragged card.
The barbed wire I have had hanging around for a while it has been die cut from grey card and then rusted using rusting powder and vinegar.
Barbed wire circle - stampendous
Flower - Art Journey
Flying Swallows - Lost coast (I think)
Remnant rubs and Dymo letters finish it off.
thanks for visiting and hope you've had a lovely weekend
