April Square .....

We have a Monthly swap between 12 of our members over on UK Stampers Forum where we swap a handmade 4 x 4 inch square with one of the group.  It runs for 12 months  so we each get a square made by another member.

This is my square for April ......  I used a set of Dylusion stamps and stamped some on Brusho coloured watercolour paper (birds) and the rest on white card (flowers & leaves)  I trimmed all elements out and painted the flowers & leaves with Twinkling H2O's so they have a lovely mica sheen !

The square was cut from used cereal packet card (trying to upcycle) and was covered with some green birdcage design paper and some layers of Washi tape.

The 'April' was stamped in Archival ink before assembly as shown and then I applied all elements along with a couple of die-cut feathers in dark pink card which were stamped with an alpha stamp in more Archival ink. The birds were 'grounded' with black Micron pen and some white penwork applied on some of the elements.

I edged the square with plum coloured Versamagic chalk ink to finish.

I really enjoyed making this little square and was totally absorbed for a couple of hours making it .... it is now on its way to its recipient !
