Good Morning!

I was going to blog this card a couple of days ago but I just couldn't think of a title....still can't, so Toucan will have to suffice.

I know lots of people like to colour birds in the correct colours, but to me that's one of the good things about stamps-you can do it your own way!

I started with a heart aperture, stamped the Toucans and covered them with the matching mask. Then I stamped the blossom, put a moon mask in place and brushed the sky. Remove masks and colour images. Then I removed the aperture and replaced with the solid heart piece, brushed mid blue around the heart. Stamp the Cheese Plant leaves in pale blue then stamp a few more in dark blue.

I thought id enter a couple of challenges...

Stempelsonnen challenge anything goes

The stamping boutique make your own background. I'm considering the stamped area around the heart as background.
