Birds of a Feather for That's Crafty Challenge Blog

Hi everyone
Our new challenge fortnight launched this morning at 8am and I'm a little late with my post due to having been working away and unable to schedule my post due to no internet. So better late than never.
Our theme over at That's Crafty Challenges for this coming fortnight is


I have taken quite a quirky approach on this one using the Lost Coast stamp - 'Cracked Old Crow' which is how I am feeling at the moment having spent 2 nights in a hotel having had very little sleep. There is nothing quite like your own bed is there?
Anyway I have stamped the crow onto a gelli printed background and coloured with pencils.  I have actually scanned in the original gelli print and printed it out which allows me to not only keep prints that I have made that I like but it also gives me a lovely smooth surface to stamp and colour onto. 
I have stamped some further detail onto the background onto it to add a bit more interest. I then stamped on my sentiment and finished off with some torn washi tape.
Hopefully you will join in with us on this challenge and by doing so you could be the lucky winner of a £20 voucher to spend online at That's Crafty, you'll find all the details HERE.
Thanks for stopping by
