Blue Bird

My friend, the lovely Kitty from a far away land*, came to visit on Saturday and we found a few minutes to play with my PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints! We both had a piece of greyboard and used pretty much all of the colours of paints, and masks, I have! We had such a good time that we played too long and didn't finish them before the lovely Kitty had to go, so we set each other the task of completing our backgrounds later. 
So yesterday I added a Journalling Ticket which I scuffed the edges and added a smidge of Vintage Photo. The advert is from Hot Pick 1109 which I stamped on canvas, painted with some Portfolio Pastels and Antique Linen Distress Stain. I scuffed the edges so that it wasn't quite so perfectly round! 
The bird was stamped on white card, painted with a wash of Beach Hut Fresco Finish paint (I love this colour) and edged with a little Vintage Photo. I hope the lovely Kitty approves of my completed project - I've seen a photo of hers and it looks fabulous! Thank you for stopping by!
*ok - so the lovely Kitty actually isn't from a far away land (she lives about 70 miles away) but sometimes it feels far away!

Wow your looks great, from humble beginnings. Thanks for showing me how to "bump" and I don't mean the dance!

Good to see so many familiar stencils, lol! The bird looks great. Don't think I've got that colour....!!
