The sentiment came with the stamp and I printed them off as one image. I think I used almost every pen in my collection for this one. I wanted to keep it CAS to make the image the focal point of the card.

I chose this image to work with for a couple of reasons. Firstly I love anything to do with Native American peoples and secondly I wanted an image that moves away from the usual pastel themes. I am not sure what sort of birds the feathers came from but I think I can  be allowed a bit of artistic license. When it comes to the pastel colours the pale aqua and the purple are my favourites.

I hope you will be inspired to join our challenge this month. Here is a reminder of the challenge rules and how to enter.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
