Today is the last project from Kat...Lovely don't you think??

Hi Jacqui and teamies.

At last I've made something with the last kit. I think you'll all think I'm very slow cos it's taken me all day to make this and then I needed to charge my phone battery before I could upload the photo!!

Sorry it's not a very good photo I've managed to cut off the top of the bow. Do you think it's a bit over the top? I seem to have ended up with a lot of bits on it!

I painted the frame in some of that lovely Annie Sloan chalk paint and then stamped over the top of it using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and a Hero Arts background stamp - Envelope Pattern. Think I'd have been better using a little stamp.....I had to hide some dodgy looking bits!

I stamped the little birdie straight onto the paper and ribbon and then onto paper which I coloured with Promarkers, cut out and then popped it up on sticky pads for some dimension. I pinched Kath's idea of a branch in the corner that she used on her canvas at her Papeterie class. Thanks Kath for the inspiration. I didn't have a die cut branch or even a suitable branch but I found a branch in a Hero Arts Christmas set and stamped it twice, coloured it and cut it out.

I added button "flowers", dressed of course. I think the rest is self explanatory. The blank frame was part of my kit. The other side said Spring but I thought this side was more useful so I could write "My craft space" on it and have it in my craft area.

I'm a bit embarrassed to show this since everyone else has made such beautiful cards, canvases and frames. I'm hoping to get some cards made in the next day or two.

I think you will all agree that it's fabulous!!!
