A Little Birdy Told Me by Donna Ratcliff

Morning all! I’ve been having a play with the original Scribbly Birds by Dina Wakely this week…

What I used

Dina Wakley – Scribbly Birds Tim Holtz Layering Stencils – Schoolhouse, Shatter
Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Black Soot
Black Archival


What I did….

1. I started out by stamping three of the birds onto a bit of paper that I had used to clean my brayer during a gelli print making session…

2. Then I took a piece of white card and added some colour to it dragging it through some spritzed Distress ink that I put on my craft mat.
3. Then I added some extra interest using the ‘Schoolhouse’ and ‘Shatter’ Layering Stencils.
4. Next I stamped one of the birds at the bottom of the piece of card and then stuck the body of one of the birds that I had stamped and cut out earlier….

5. Then I stamped another of the birds, positioning so its feet stood on the one beneath and again added the cut out body of one of the previously stamped birds….

6. I repeated the process with the third bird and then added some shading around all three with some black pencil. To finish off I added some stamped wording and a bit of dark shading around some of the outside edges.
Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you next week
