Bluebird

Well honestly I am not sure if this is suppose to be a bluejay or not but I decided to color him that way.  This comes from a set of Martha Stewart bird stamps and there are no names of what the birds are, so that gives you license to color them anyway you want :)


Wow no pattern paper here, I know a shock huh, I have been doing a few like that here lately, not sure what has come over me.  But I am sure it won't last long, I have too many papers that need to be used. I did do some inking around the die before taking the paper out of the die and then added a little darker blue around the edges after taking the image out of the die.

We had a day without rain yesterday and this morning it has rained again, it has been great for my garden, saving us money on having to water that's for sure, but I could really use less humidity.  I will have to say though we were really blessed with a nice spring this year, so that was nice.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and for leaving your comments, it's neat to hear from you,

Very pretty! I like this stamp as a blue jay and I bet it would be fun to color other ways too. I like the label die you used for the overall card shape and the pretty sponging around it!

That's so pretty ~ I love blue with pink. What a sweet bird stamp :)

I hope you can find somewhere shady and refreshing to relax in with all the humid heat...It's a free *steam bath!*
Enjoy your week end!

It looks just like the blue jays we have around here. That crest gives them away. I always think it makes them look like little hooligans, especially with them being so noisy and all. What a beautiful stamp and you colored it so beautifully, too! Also love the die cut card base and your soft sponging. That "lots of white space" thing comes over me sometimes, too, but I also have lots of DP to use up, so the white doesn't last long. This is really gorgeous, Connie, and I sure enjoyed seeing it today!
