Thank goodness for a long weekend! We went out for a lovely walk today and a bit of fresh air blew a few of the cobwebs away. That got me back in to a crafty mood and this is what I came up with:
I wanted to play along with the purple challenge at Inkspirational and embossed this beautiful birdcage from Clarity Stamps in purple embossing powder. The little birds are from an Avery Elle set and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps. I also added a little silver birdcage charm to play along with this week's challenge at Less Is More to use metal. When I had done, it looked a bit stark so I inked through a stencil in Milled Lavender and so I will link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge too. Finally I will play along at Addicted to Stamps where the birdcage and purple birds inspired me.
Next up is a card made for this week's Muse Christmas Visions - I love the deep red base and festive focal point of Betty's beautiful card. My take is pretty literal:
I used a favourite from Waltzingmouse Stamps on a stitched circle die from Simon Says. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Our walk was at Yorkshire Sculpture Park - this is one of the sculptures we came across amidst the beautiful countryside. I thought you would like it:
