A little bird told me...


...that the colours on the latest Play Date Cafe challenge are green, silver and gold, so here's my entry.

The bird is gold, and the writing is silver. Unfortunately my PC died a few days ago so I'm having to use my netbook which means I can't edit the pic very well to bring out the shine.

Bird stamp is Stampers Anonymous, foliage is a mix of Artemio and Paper-artsey.

  5. Hi Nigel.
    You have used the colours beautifully. I just love the foliage and birds stamps. You have combined them very cleverly. This piece reminds me of my favourite walk around our village. I am always looking into the hedgerows and stream banks, seeking out unusual wild flowers.
    Your creation reminds me of what is to come, so thank you for that!
