Birds of a Feather

Morning and welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost. This week I am showcasing one of my favourite stamp sets from the  NATURE and OUTDOORS category.
I made a selection of projects this time around using the BIRDS OF A FEATHER stamp set.  I have had a dabble at doing a video for you, simply showing the projects in more detail and highlighting how I use the Drawing Gum. Pop by my blog for more details.
I have used two sets of products to colour all my backgrounds, Color Bursts and DecoArt Media Shimmer Misters.
On each of my pieces I have added a layer of Clear Rock Candy Crackle, applying in thick and thinner layers randomly around my pieces and then highlighting all the cracks with DecoArt Raw Umber Antiquing Cream. Before applying the Clear Rock Candy, I applied a coat of DecoArt Matte Medium to seal the layers below; this also allows me to draw around the imagery with a Pitt Pen and smudge with my finger to create a shadow.
This piece showcases perfectly the finer and larger cracks the Clear Rock Candy gives and the added texture to the design.
I created an accordion card to fit in my matchbox, tiny gift cards, coordinated card and my matchbox with mini easel sitting on the top.
All stamps in the NATURE AND OUTDOORS category are ON SALE for 20% off through to Saturday, 11th July 2015!  No code is needed to shop in this sale, the sale price will be reflected in the shopping cart. (Retail Customers only).

Thanks so much for stopping by.
