Arty Girlz Challenge - Nature!


Here are 2 cards for the Arty Girlz challenge which is Nature this week. I received these fab bird stamps from OneFourZero as a prize from a craft magazine! They are so cute and such good quality, I love them! Sitting out in the garden this morning I was looking at the beautiful trees and birds and I was inspired to use these stamps! The first card is a take on Andy Warhol with the different colours! The second one is more serene and reflects the weather we have at the moment! The images are all coloured with Distress Inks (I went for a water colour effect on these cards). I added faux stitching and doodling on both cards and some craft wire and flowers for decoration. The scallops were cut free-hand!
GOOD NEWS!! Rachel from OneFourZero saw my cards and has asked me to be on her design team! I am so happy!!
Hope everyone is enjoying their day! Love Becky xx
