Bluebird by Donna Ratcliff


 
 
 

Another make from my couple of crafty days with Mandy……we had a bit of a making session, lol! Used some Artistic Outpost stamps on this little notebook, I really love their stamps!
 

What I used

Artistic Outpost – Bluebird
Carabelle Studio Mini Stamp – Texture Etoiles
Distress Ink –
Bundled Sage, Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, Gathered Twigs

Watering Can Archival Ink
Gesso
Small notebook



What to do….


1. Give your notebook a coat of white gesso, this was a blank notebook so only needed one coat but if you were using a patterned one then you might need an extra coat.

2. Blend on various colours of Distress Ink……I used Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage. Then add a bit of stamping with the mini star texture stamp using some Gathered Twigs Distress.

3. Stamp the birds on the wire across front and back covers.

4. Then from the same plate stamp the text onto a scrap of white card, the little boy figure onto another piece of card and finally the sentiment. Trim all these, colour with Distress using the same colour palette and finally rough up the edges.

5. Then it’s just a case of gluing all your stamped and coloured pieces in place.
 

Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you next week
