February Rudolf day

It is time for February Rudolf Days! Here are two very similar cards, inspired by one I received from Deby and Emma at Inkylicious. All stamps and Inks are from Inkylicious. Take a closer look...
I spattered with my paint marrker and a spray bottle with diluted blue starlights paint, so they are quite sparkly!
I coloured the scarves with some paint markers I've had for a very very long time! Amazing what you uncover when you have a good tidy!
Thanks for looking and do pop over to Mo's blog if you can xxx

Here are some cards I have made using Hobby Art Lino Cut Hares stamp set, designed by Janie Burnett-Bleach. I used Izinks and memento inks to dust the backgrounds onto silk art card, before  stamping with memento ink. 
The moons were stamped in versamagic ink and dusted with mica powders, which was then sealed with hairspray.
I love these stamps and the cards were so quick to make. I have a funny feeling that I may have a bit of an addiction to hare stamps, lol. Just bought another two sets this week, when I already own 4 other sets! At least it isn't as bad as my tree addition!
Thanks for looking!

Mid Month inspiration for Stamping Sensations February Challenge

Here is my mid-month inspiration for Stamping Sensations where the theme is All things Bright and BEAUtiful. I made another background with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and stamped the Ground Elder in Versafine Clair Nocturne. The fern leaves are stamped in Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar. You can find all of the BEAUtanical Stamps on the Bee Crafty website here.

A few birds in the Garden

Hi There
I've been a bit quiet but it's half term this week so I am going to be a frequent visitor to blog land this week! Thought I would share some photos of the birds visiting our bird feeders at the moment. Spring seems to be in the air and the blackbirds are busy chasing off their rivals. Mrs Blackcap has made an appearance - the first female we have seen here, so hoping we will get youngsters this year. Here she is with her brown cap.

There has also been a little flock of long-tailed tits. They are such beautiful birds!

Thanks for looking and I will be back tomorrow with some mid month inspiration for Stamping Sensations.

February at Stamping Sensations

Good morning, It's time for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we are looking for
****All things Bright and BEAUtiful****
As the title suggest we would love to see your hand stamped creations that reflect that hymn or celebrate the beautiful wonders of nature. I am sure you will come up with lots of fabulous designs.
My Card this month features gorgeous tree stamps from our lovely sponsors,  Bee Crafty. I created the background with spectrum noir sparkle pens first, then once it was dry, stamped with Versafine Clair in Nocturne and Morning Mist. A few dots of silver pen and a sponged hill or two finished the picture. The sparkle is fab but very hard to see in photos! The base card was stamped with another stamp from the set in Distress inks in Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. I think this has to be my favourite sentiment at the moment - so true!
