It's one layer week at Less is More this week and Chrissie and Mandi want to see Fur or Feathers. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know that I do love a bird stamp and a one layer card too, so this challenge was right up my street! Here's what I made:
This Young Vermillion single stamp is a favourite of mine and if you click on Young Vermillion in my side bar you'll see that I've used him for all sorts of different events and seasons!
To make the card, I scribbled a background with my Watercolour Wonder crayons and washed over it with my aquapainter. The bird was inked with an Early Espresso marker before stamping, so I could leave out the marking round the eye that distinguishes him as a vermillion, so now he is a thrush! I extended the branch to fit the card and coloured the bird with my Watercolour Wonder crayons and an aquapainter. The leaves are from the Confetti set of fabulous backgrounds and I finished the card with a Cajun Craze sentiment. Oh, and I added a bit of scoring - my favourite thing!
Here's what you'll need to make today's card:
Stamps: Young Vermillion, Confetti, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Cajun Craze
Card stock: Naturals Ivory
Other: Watercolour Wonder crayons, Early Espresso marker, Simply Scored, stamp-a-majig

We were supposed to be travelling to Somerset to visit relatives today but it's been cancelled, so I've had some unexpected crafting time! The sun is shining into my living room, the French doors are open and there's a very relaxed holiday atmosphere in here. Outside though, there's obviously a full-scale water fight going on - my youngest son has just come into the garden to fill up his water pistol at the tap and I've just sent him off into giggles by flinging my hands in the air and shrieking "Aaargh! Don't shoot!"
Hope you're having a lovely day!
