Cheep,cheep,cheep.....for the Sunday stampers challenge

Hey there bloggers,
here is my cheep, cheep cheep  entry for my first ever Sunday stampers challenge @ http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/

I decided to use a notebook that had been awaiting my attention for a while. The notebook had been painted with household emulsion in grey, a crackle medium and then a creamy emulsion and sat waiting for inspiration to strike.

I coloured the cover using distress inks on cut n dry foam in weathered wood and stormy skies, I then ovestamped using a Tim flourish in stormy skies.
Once dry I overstamped the birdcage in frayed burlap, such a gorgeous colour......The decoration, is mostlyTim using a birdcage cut from card and coloured with frayed burlap, overstamped and brads added for detail, tickets from Creative Expressions were then used to make a flower.

The bird is stamped in weathered wood and I added shade using frayed burlap.
The flourishes are Tims' elegant flourishes cut from grungepaper, coloured with weathered wood and frayed burlap distress stickles painted on for grungy bling.

Anyway again I must learn to remember to be short (well I am!!) and sweet once in a while...just get carried away!

Anyway that's all for tonight,
Have a happy crafty day
