Welcome to my second inspiration card for the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge! All the STAMPlorations DT are showing their contributions on the STAMPlorations blog here.

This month the theme and Sketch are:

This time I went with the sketch and used the fun Birds of Paradise again, with the addition of a stamp set I recently managed to get when it came out of retirement (yeah!!!), the Trendy Feathers set.
I'm not sure what I (or the bird) was thinking but it made me smile to add the Seriously Word Die a la John Mc Enroe….

Anyway... the feathers lend themselves to being stamped in colours, preferably several colours at once and I enjoyed using Distress Oxides with them.

The bird was also stamped in Dox and coloured with pencils.

I hope I have inspired you to join the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge, you still have 2 weeks to enter and if you do you could win prizes...

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Addicted to stampsCraft Stamper and Penny Black and more challenges.



  1. This one made me smile Christine, both the bird and the sentiment and it's also a great CAS example.
