I have taken the fun challenge on Simon Says Stamp: start from scratch.
And it's true it's just to get started... ;-)
I must also from time to time work with my blocking for use of white paper.
So thanks for all the good advice from Michelle they are good to have in mind.
I stamped my post card 2 times, and cut out the bird
and colored with blue and red.
I distressed the background with old paper ink. And also distress on the edge.
The background of my manilla tag is embossed with clear embossing powder and highlighted with old paper, gathered twigs and pumice stone.
The small card is stamped with Tim's Grunge Alphabet.
Tim's feathers got a thick layer of embossing powder
on top of the black color. At last I put a wax seal on.
