Hello and welcome! It's Saturday again and that means it's the start of a new challenge at Allsorts. Brenda is hosting this week and her challenge is "I spy something beginning with "B". It's an optional theme so if you haven't included any "B"s on your card you are still invited to join us with a new crafty creation for your chance to win or to be selected as a Top 5. Prizes are from Aldridge Crafts, Stampendous, AALL and Create, these are for challenge 758 and 759.
Always love this theme as there are so many things that would be suitable and I decided on B for Bird on a Branch, Blue and Black.
I used some new to me stamps from Aall and Create to make this simple card. I first stamped the bird (from the set Robin and Nuthatch), then masked the edges off with washi tape, then I added the watered down Distress ink (Faded Jeans) around the bird using a piece of acetate. The clocks are from the All and Create set Clocks and Flowers. (By the way, both of these sets are still available and part of their super discounts along with many other stamps!!) I wanted to ink around the inner edges before removing the washi tape but somehow I forgot about doing it until the card was finished... I think it would have given the edges a little more definition.
The sentiment is part of the Clocks and Flowers set.
