Another beautiful day on
planet Earth - it certainly
is a beautiful day in my
Today's project is just
tailor made for those of
us who have difficulty in
knowing what day of the
week we're in........!
Here is Craftyfield to show
us the way.....
"When I saw this bird, standing on one foot
and looking sorry for himself, I knew
this Joggles image would be my "Oops" stamp.
You know "Oops" I forgot your birthday,
"Oops" I heard you broke your leg...
I thought a CAS design would be ideal and
quick to make in a batch.
I will finish the inside when I know
what "Oops" I'm dealing with!
I stamped my bird with Distress Oxide,
partly because I was trying the new inks and
partly because this happened to be the most appropriate
yellow for a no-line colouring.
[no-line colouring: when the stamped lines
are invisible or near invisible after colouring]
I coloured Quirky no3 with watersoluble pencils,
masked his legs with masking fluid and
splattered yellows, brown and blue also with the pencils
I stencilled chicken wire behind the bird.
I used an old alphabet stamp set to
create my sentiment.
I added finishing touches by die-cutting
with a Stitched frame die.
Now I am all set for my next gaffe!"
