RubberMoon happy mail!

Hello. Look what my friend Debra sent me! Debs and I 'met' a couple of years ago through a happy mail Facebook group and we have been exchanging letters, postcards and small gifts all the way over the pond ever since. But this time, wow, look what she sent!! All because I admired these gorgeously quirky stamps from RubberMoon that she had used on some makes over on her blog here.

There's four moon type stamps, two quirky birds, two sentiments some stickers and a badge! And I couldn't wait to have a play.....

First up a fairly clean and simple style. The little birdie has been watercoloured, fussy cut then added to the card over a doily and some diecut papers. Sequins and the sentiment are the perfect finishing touch.

Next a page in my art journal. Inky, painty background using circle stencils. A touch of gold paste, some washi and word stickers.I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

And finally, a bigger card. For the background here I used my infusions 'golden sands' and then stencilled over the top with brown ink. I drew around the leaves with my white Signo pen. The birds are watercoloured, fussy cut and then adhered to the background. Enameled dots and sentiment complete it nicely.

I know I'm going to have loads of fun with these stamps so a big thank you to Debs and RubberMoon!
