Here is the little bird canvas that has been sitting on my table all week ! I'm posting it just in time for the Fashionable Stamping Challenges, 'Bird' challenge.There's a randomly selected prize from Cottage Crafts for one lucky winner. This canvas was fun to make with dimensional paste and a Crafter's Workshop stencil to create the background. I used Adirondack paint dabbers in Pool, Antique Linen, Crushed Olive and Snow CapWhite for colour. The bird was a stamp I've had for sometime, it's from a company called Stamp Francisco. I stamped it onto tissue paper with black Archival ink and layered onto the painted canvas before colouring with Distress Markers. I then masked it off and stamped the foliage over with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Sea Foam white embossing powder. I then covered the canvas with Rock Candy Distress Crackle. I then carefully gave the little bird a coat of matte acrylic medium to reduce the shine. A few words and a bit of hardware from Tim Holtz's Ideaology plus the all important Vintage Photo Distress around the edges, complete the look.

Watch the birdie! I've used a little artistic license as I think the stamp may be a wren, but with a nice red breast has been transformed into a robin. We have a delightful little robin that visits our bird table each day and so a robin it had to be.x
