Little Boy Bluebird

Hello all, Alison here... I'm here with a collaged canvas today, combining Artistic Outpost stamps with Pion papers.  I'll focus on the stamps in this post, but if there are other things you want to see more of, you can find the details here.
The little birds on the Vintage Gardens papers seemed to me to be the perfect complement to the images from the Bluebird stamp set.
There's the adorable little boy.  I've stamped him in Sepia Archival on a tea/coffee stained tag (yes, I had both beverages in the bowl when I dyed the tags).  And I added some of the lovely text around the edges of the tag.
The musical birds are also stamped on a tea/coffee tag, trimmed and softened at the edges with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.
The Thinking of You sentiment seemed perfect on the little label cut straight from the Pion papers.
And I added some extra detailing to some other little tags using the text stamp again...
... as well as to my little bunting flags, strung across one corner of the canvas with twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and do come and share your projects using Artistic Outpost stamps in the August Referral Program.  Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Alison, what a treat for the eyes! So many petty and vintage details and I love all the doilies and mini tags tucked behind the AO images!

Fabulous, Alison! Love that Vintage Garden paper and Bluebird is an old favorite set of mine, especially that sweet little boy. Your sepia tones are perfect for the papers and everything looks fabulous mounted on that white corrugated cardboard!

Lovely canvas, Alison. I love the stamping and cute little banner. So shabby with a hint of vintage. Gorgeous make.
