Flying By


I have been eyeing up the lovely tropical leaf and parrot stamp set from Altenew for ages and decided to get it last week whilst we were having a brief spell of warm weather :)  I thought the parrot would go well with my Forest Foliage stencil and this is what I made with them:

I simply stamped and masked the parrot before inking the foliage stencil through a circle mask and lightly inked round the edge to give the circle soft definition.  I coloured the parrot with spectrum noir pencils and added an Altenew sentiment from the iris set.  I have been so busy playing with stencils that it is ages since I coloured anything in with took me ages to unearth them from under a load of other crafty supplies!  I shall link up at Less is More where the theme is Bring it Back and at Seize the Birthday where the theme is vibrant colours.

I hope you like my tropical design :)  The stencil is available in my Folksy store.

Thanks for stopping by,
