Last night we had friends over for dinner and I chose a triple espresso for dessert. This bird ATC is the result of a much too caffeinated body. Everyone else here was sound asleep, but I sat jittering at the computer linking away to more new worlds. So I'm not even sure how I got here, but I found this site called Wednesday Stamper. A new theme for stamping is posted every Wednesday and you can share your work there. Last Wednesday's theme was Birds. Lately I've been feeling inspired, looking at some of my favorite bird images here and here. So how could I possibly refuse this challenge!!? But I had to do it right then, as today is the deadline to post. So this was the motivation to carve my own bird stamp. (Here's my first attempt at stamp carving.) And the bird stamp here:
Obviously, I need to work on my carving skills, but I'm pleased with the results. Even with that triple espresso!!
Well, now is a good time to mention that I am hosting a Bird Theme ATC Swap. There are already eleven people in the swap, but more are welcome!! Make six ATCs, (standard 2.5" x 3.5") using any medium, and have them mailed to me by October 16th. Include a SASE and I will swap them out and mail them to you on the 17th. Leave a comment here and I will send you the details.
Now I'm ready for a double latte! :)
