SCD and ally pally

This weeks theme for SCD is Birds. So after being inspired by the art from the heart stand at ally pally i came up with this. I have used Dylan's acrylic paints that are so fantastically sheer and wonderfully bright, with the a blue dye ink and T/H black distress ink.

The paint was applied with an old plastic library card, and the different circles were done with a top from a mister bottle, a mask and a dotty stamp. The bird is cut from the bird and cage T/H die and the two small birds are from a basic grey stamp set, i stamped the crown and added the bling to give a bit of sparkle. These are not colours i tend to use and i totally love the random background effect. Here are some of the things i bought from ally pally, I've always like the stampotique stamps, so i bought these three, i may have to have some on my Xmas list though

The Dylan paints form Art From The Heart. She did some fab demo's and her paints are so sheer. So i had to buy and in the end i bought 3 paints and 3 dye based mists.

Finally i decided to but the T/H tiny attacher and the cogs mask (because i just love the clock face) Paperartsy dies 2&3 and the flower stamps and kaisercraft dollie and lace stamps.

I did by some extra bits like the small prima stamps which are such fab value for money, some of the collection elements chipboard that LBcrafts were selling and some 7gypsies stickers. Did spend too much money, but i'm going to have fun playing with all these bits.
