Butterflies and Birds !

Butterflies and Birds
           Hi friends...Thank you so much for encouraging my coloring  on my watercolored card...sharing yet another card with lots of watercoloring and inking.
        I dont own many stamps and I dont buy many either since I tell myself I cant be bothered to color them!This cute love birds stamp was  lying unused and unloved in my stash for more than 2 yrs! Yes I know so wicked of me to not use such an adorable stamp!!
Butterflies and Birds 
        I colored the stamped image with Faber Castell water color pencils and a normal paintbrush dipped in water. Highlighted the stamped frame with Gold liquid pearls. All the embossed flowers were inked with Tumbled glass Distress Inks ...I love this soothing shade of aqua blue!
Mushroom Golden Charm
         The golden mushroom is a charm from the local market and I think the birds and butterflies would love a mushroom in the garden!
Heat Embossed Butterfly 
Stamped and heat embossed a butterfly and water colored it using Distress Ink Pads. I  swiped the Distress Ink Pad on the craft mat , misted with water and painted by dipping with a paint brush!
Heat Embossing
          The golden die cut atop the framed image was cut using  a Marianne Anja Corner die and painstakingly inked with an embossing pen and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.
Heat Embossed Teal Flowers
     Supplies used: Dies : Heartfelt creations Botanical Wings , Marianne Vintage Border , Marianne Anja Corners, Sizzix- Hero Arts Butterfly stamp - die cut set,
Stamps : Hero Arts Cling rubber Butterfly, Autumn Leaves dmd Love birds clear stamp , Heartfelt creations Botanical Wings

And before I sign off ,sharing 2 pictures of my crafting space with some of the cards I made this month
Craft Space
You can see my favorite crafty tool my Big Shot , some cards I made this month and my favorite Tim Holtz scissors in the photo above. In the next photo you can see my adhesive tapes, scissor collection and essential pens,pencils and scale.
Craft Space
          My working surface  has 4 levels [ I have shown you 2 levels in these pictures] so that the height is just right for me to craft sitting as well as standing when I want to .In this photo you can see some of the cupboards used to store craft supplies.The whole space  was designed by my hubby who is an ENT Surgeon but very talented at designing!
A lot of people have asked me to share my crafty space photos....I will take more photos and share a full reveal later!

  4. Wonderful bird coloring. Especially like the heat embossing on the Butterfly. Wonderful craft space. So clean & organized. We had a Tuff Shed built and I was a U Haul van driver & packer yesterday to move stuff out of rental storage unit. Donated alot of stuff to Salvation Army. Alot of people will have a wonderful Christmas this yr. Hubby built shelves in the Tuff Shed, painted the floor with a sealant. He also organized the stuff I had moved into it.
