I did this layout for two challenges - the weekly challenge over at Club CK to use something new on a layout and Stacy's challenge at SNC to pull out the stamps and use two different ones on a layout. I used a little bit of this and that for this layout.
I did the title using my new banner alpha stamps from CTMH - love them! I wanted to add "Little Chickadees" in small alphas but I don't use them that much so I don't have a variety of colours. The ones I have wouldn't work with this colour scheme. So, I pulled out my new Bic ultra fine markers and voilà. I'm not convinced I love my printing in the title but at least there's some of my printing in the album. Everyone says how important it is so there you go! lol
I pulled out a new little birdie stamp that I got in a RAK last year but have hardly used. I thought I'd add them along the banner for some added interest. I used my new CTMH watercolours to colour in the stamps. I can tell I'm going to need lots of practice to make my stamps look better but it's a start! I'd never shaded in stamps before so another new thing for me.
I added a little button cluster to the baker's twine on the left and then a sticker, a birdie card, some sparkly bling and a bit of ribbon to finish it off.
