Another Regional Seminar project

Third of four projects from the Stampin' Up! Melbourne Regional Seminar ... again using Every Moment, but this time the bird stamp from that set.

Here, while we used watercolouring techniques again, this one is done on Very Vanilla cardstock. The result is not quite as satisfactory as when the Watercolour Paper is used, but it can be done. You just need to use less water and be pretty sure about how heavy or light your colouring is, as you won't be able to wash colour away or add too many layers of colour.

The bag is made using Fancy Favour Bigz XL Die for the Big Shot - cut twice, once from Old Olive textured cardstock and once from Very Vanilla cardstock. The bottom is trimmed off the Very Vanilla template and the whole thing turned upside down to create a layered effect.

See the writing on the tag? Eagle-eyed viewers might recognise the text from the stamp in the set, but it looks a little different. Using a Stampin' Write marker and the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I inked only part of the first line of text and positioned it carefully for a new look.

And here's a closeup of my fabulous watercolouring - this is actually quite addictive *g*.

Supplies used:
Stamp/s: Every Moment
Ink: Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede, Black Stazon
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Old Olive Textured
Other: Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Linen thread, Basic Pearls, Aqua Painter, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker, Fancy Favor Bigz XL die, Cropadile

that's nice - they look less like sausages *g*

Now, I was hoping nobody was going to mention how much those reeds look like sausages. Because the more you mention how much they look like sausages, the more they look like sausages. In fact, you may not be able to get the image of sausages out of your head. If anyone mentions it, that is.

Does anyone know where I can get the template and instructions for that beautiful birdhouse that was made by one of the talented demonstrators on stage. I have been searching and searching.

Thanks for your help.

Karen, if you're on stampin' connection, I know Maureen posted her pattern on there ... I won't put up a link, but it's currently on about the 4th page of the Products category in the discussions.
Hope this helps! I still have plans to make one of these ... one day ...
