Inspired Stamps - Desk Calendar


Hello Friends!  Today at Inspired Stamps, the DT will be sharing a project with Nature & Scripture.  I made a little easel calendar project using the Inspired Stamps set Ask, Seek, Knock.  The verse from Luke is a favourite of mine from young, and I wanted it on this mini calendar which I can place on my desk.


I just couldn't get a very good picture of the Scripture sentiment, but hopefully you can read it.  The tree was stamped on white cardstock and coloured with Copic Markers (Tree - E29, E25, E99, E33 and E53; Grass - YG91, YG93, YG95).  I was keen to try out this marker combination after watching several videos on youtube (incidentally, I learnt a lot on how to colour with Copics from youtube - there are lots of good videos available).  The little birdhouse was stamped on the same cardstock and again on a small piece of cardstock.  I coloured both of them using Copics RV10, RV63 and RV66, E04, R22, R24, R27, R29 and cut out the image on the small piece of cardstock and adhered it with pop dots onto the piece with the tree image.  I added some brown Baker's Twine to the string above the birdhouse.

Here's how the calendar looks when opened:


And, now, please click on the names of the DT on my sidebar to see their wonderful projects or visit the Inspired Stamps blog for more info.

Thanks for coming by today.

Have a beautiful day!
Kary

The quaint little birdhouse in the shape of a heart is very attractive - "home is where the heart is".
