I didn't have a large leaf stencil, so I used a digital die leaf and cut it with my Cameo out of acetate. I've also cut a smaller leaves stencil, so I can use them again. I used the large leaf style stencil, to match a leaf stamp I have, which is in the set of tropical stamps, with the hibiscus flower stamp. The Aloha was a digital die cut I have used before.
stencil - Planeta Silhouette
stamps - Magazine freebies Simply Cards and Papercraft # 205
sparkle pen - Spectrum Noir
pink card - The Works
black card - The Range
these are the stencils I cut out of 140 micron acetate.
(Ashamedly the leaf still has some ink on it.)
I've bought or had a few freebie stencils to cut out recently,
all I have to do now is get them cut and use them.
Seeing as we have some heat, not as hot as some parts of the UK, but very nice heat for us, to make us feel a little tropical, I thought I would share some piccies of Sparrows enjoying the feeder and the water we have for them. There must be at least 25 who visit every 2ish hours in the garden to feed off the feeders. They are so quick and are eating us out of house and home LOL.
They are not edited, sorry, I just wanted to add them before I posted this.
They fly into and out of the Physocarpus "Diabolo" shrub, the perfect hideaway for them.
some decided to have a bath
and then some more decided to join them!
I hope you'll be OK in the thunderstorms and heavy rain promised this next week.
