Its a boy thing at Creative Inspirations

Good morning lovelies - how are you?  I'm good although I'm not looking forward to a soggy run this morning - as long as the wind drops a bit it shouldn't be too bad.

This week's challenge  at Creative Inspirations is It's A Boy Thing!
We want to see all things masculine this week!

This week's prize is from another brand new sponsor  for 2014 which is CRAFTS U LOVE and they are offering a £10 VOUCHER to the lucky winner!


I decided it was time for more steampunk birds and this time I chose the duck stamp from Chocolate Baroque.


I created the background using the gelli plate and a stencil from Imagination Crafts. I mounted this onto a card and added some blu paper ontop for the water - I used a white pen to add some peaks in the water then added my stamped, coloured and fussycut bird on top. The whole thing was then mounted onto some mat silver card that I had run through an embossalicious embossing folder using my grand calibur.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Pan pastelpanpasteluk: Use a stencil

Thats all for today - thanks for dropping by and for any comments you leave! Big Crafty Hugs! Rachel x
