Ben's Bird Box

My nephew Ben who is only 9 made a wooden bird
box and came to me to decorate it with him.

We used white acrylic for the main box and a yellow
distress paint for the roof.

We stamped ivy trails over the roof and edges to
add some interest.

The main image on the front is by Stamps Away - blue tit

Inkylicious bird to the sides along with grasses
stamps from Woodware.

Ben was so pleased with his masterpiece, as am I.

Man Flu - Challenge 24

Challenge 24 - Anything Goes over on Cards For Men Challenge Blog
This is my entry into challenge 24.  The image is a digi stamp from
our sponsor Dr. Digi's House of Stamps 'Man Flu'
The image has been coloured using promarkers and cut
using an Xcut Stamp Die.  Edges distressed with yellow ink
and backed onto Forever Friends patterned papers.
Do have a go at this challenge as you are not restricted to any one theme. 

DR Digi's House of Stamps is a site that aims to bring you digi stamps
with a sense of humour. We're not your average
Digi site, you wont find flowers and teddy bears.  Well you might.. 
but it'll be holding a bloody big chainsaw!
