All the stamps used in today's card are from Dimension Fourth, a British company that I discovered last year while attending a crafts show in Birmingham. They have lots of self-cling polymer stamps, a fabulous range of images at very reasonable prices and, very importantly, an excellent customer service.
Don't you think the stamps are beautiful? I got these ones recently and could not wait to play with them.
And I am very happy with the result: the bird house is adorable and the final card offers that spring/summer feel that I was looking for. The weather has been fantastic today and I feel optimistic -spring may finally be here!
I coloured the different images with Letraset Promarkers, and cut and layered some of them with 3D pads to give dimension. I added glitter to the butterfly wings and to the bird, as well as 3D embossing fluid, for extra dimension.
I hope you find my handmade cards, pieces of jewellery, altered items, scrapbook pages and any of my arty bits featured in this space inspirational. If you do, please leave me a comment and acknowledge it; but I would like to ask you not to copy them. You can use my ideas for personal use, but please don't make them your own - it is fairer if you link your work to my blog. :-) Thanks!
