Using the pieces left from class

As regular blog followers know, I attended a class in Harrogate with Karen Hayselden where I decorated a cute bird house.  I also made some backgrounds as part of the class and stamped some images as options for the birdhouse.  Today I am sharing what I did with these…

This one had a little extra black added to provide a shadow for the Kate Crane Stampotique girl.  I then layered the image up and added more shading with the Pitt pens.  I also added stencilling with the Tim Holtz stencil I bought on the day of the class..  This is definitely my favourite stencil of the moment.

The next one…

This I mounted up on a few layers and added black as an outline on the panel.  I added the sentiment from my Kim Dellow Paperartsy stamps and a button brad.  I also added some card candi as a further embellishment.  Again I shaded with pens and paint.

The next two were the smaller pieces cut off the others…

This I kept quite simple with just a bit of extra black for shadow and layering on black paper and the card candi.

The last one I used a different stamp.

I also took the other off cuts to create some different panels and added a little stencilling on the base card too to bring it all together.  Love the Tim Holt crazy birds and cats collection … so it was good to stamp a couple of these out at the class to play with them.  The sentiment is a Dylusions stamp that I bought on the day

So plenty of fun from the 1 piece of a4…

Hope you like what I did with them.

Happy crafting!
