Birdie ATCs

I have an ATC set to share which was made for a stamp swap on a FB forum -it started a few months ago and a bit like a round Robin we all send a stamp to someone in the group and they all go round till you get yours back again and we have to share what we made so not sure what make the stamp is.The stamp is Curly Bird from purple Onion Designs.
I stamped the image onto the ATC card then stamped again on book pages-then once again on oddments of a shaving foam technique used on another project,faux stitching round the edges then my fave texture stamp on the bottom edge to ground the bird.

They are super ATC's Carol, the bird's are real fun and great contrast stamping onto the book pages - but I found to my embarrassment that it's best to check the content and preferably before you send them off to TV. You can guess the rest! Bxx

These really appeal to me, Carol. I love the stamping on newsprint and that it's all monochrome except for the purple heart, which really pops. The quirky bird image is great too. Thank you for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations for our Wings challenge.

These are so pretty Carol. I love how you have stamped them on book pages and then added just a splash of fabulous colour on the wing with a third stamping. Your texture stamp adds that perfect finishing touch.

Your FB Forum sounds great fun, love how you all get to do your own take on the same stamp.
