Winter Birds

Well, thanks to some friends coming over to stamp, the pit I call my stamp studio is now clean. No, I didn't make my friends help clean up, I was so embarrassed that I cleaned it before they came over. I invite people over for dinner sometimes just to give me the added kick in the rear I need to tidy things up. Tell me I am not the only one who does that?!

The weekend was also very productive. I got some Stampavie Projects done, baked a peaches and cream pie, made a second (double) batch of spaghetti sauce with meatballs and cooked up a pot roast for the family. The best part was hubby doing clean up after I used just about every dish, pot and appliance in the kitchen. Love that guy!!

I even snuck in creative time. Here is a sample I posted to the Stampavie blog today. The image is called Winter Birds from the Tina Wenke collection.

Kraft serves as the base for this card, anchoring a darker/richer color scheme. The image pretty much takes up the whole card, just a bit of room for some crinkled ribbon. After I colored the image with Copics, I added fine glitter to all the areas of snow.

I have a busy week ahead of me but hope to be back again soon with another project.
Have a great day!

Love this stamp and I also have it. I'm going to use it for some of my Christmas cards this year. Love to see samples that show the colored image. Thanks for sharing and the inspiration.
