Well Christmas is over for another year and I, for one, am glad to be doing some crafting which doesn't involve reds, greens and glitter!
The challenge this week at Less is More is 'Just One Word' and I have chosen to use part of a retired stamp to say hello. I finally got my stamp Young Vermillion' mounted (I've had him for a few weeks now and not got round to using him!) and stamped him in Early Espresso and then used a blender pen with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and So Saffron to colour in. I added the sentiment and some Linen Thread and rounded two opposite corners before mounting onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then onto a white card blank - job done!
The Young Vermillion stamp is an A la Carte single stamp, available from the Stampin'Up! 2011-12 catalogue at only £6.95. On the right I have shown you it stamped in Crumb Cake so you can see there is a lot of scope to turn him into a number of different birds, unfortunately I am not too well up on bird species other than the common varieties but he is still beautiful simply stamped in just one colour.
