SSCB#10 - We've Moved

Today I'm playing along with the Serendipity Stamps Challenge blog.  We run a challenge twice a month so you have plenty of time to play.  All you need to do is create a design using at least one Serendipity Stamps image.  The challenge this time is to stamp a background on your project!  Lately I have Spring fever.  Can't wait to walk barefoot in the grass or open the windows and shut off the furnace!  That explains where my little birdhouse came from - if you look close it's sitting in a dogwood tree!

I stamped the background on cream paper and then colored  in the blue sky with my Copic markers - and can I say that paper was very thirsty!!  I threw in some burlap for texture and of course maybe a little motivation for the birds to move back in!
Need a little inspiration?  Visit the rest of the design team and see the backgrounds they stamped for this challenge.

I hope you'll join us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog - we'd love to see what you come up with - and hey!  You might just win $20 off your  next Serendipity Stamps order!  Everyone is a winner because the sale this week is 40% the highest priced item in your cart - enter coupon code “40fromhigh413” from now until May 1!

Simply beautiful Jeanne! I love the birdhouse and your lovely stamped background! It's a busy day on your blog today!

Cathy Weber said...

Pauline is right... you have been so busy! I can hardly keep up with all you have done, but your beautiful background paper with the dogwood branches is beautiful. I love that birdhouse...perfectly colored. The rustic look with the jute ribbon and the soft pink bow is beautiful. I also really like the way you took your picture with the bamboo along the bottom and the music paper in the background. Really pretty post today Jeanne.
