Welcome Bird Hanging

Hellooooo!  While I was at the Craft Barn Extravaganza I started working on this Welcome Bird Hanging & having a good play around with the new Tando Masks!  Here it is completed...


First thing I did was to chop off the surrounding circle as I wanted to mount it on a canvas (20x20cm).  The 'welcome' letters & the bird were first painted with cream acrylic and then, using the masks, sponged with distress inks. The leaves were eventually sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer mistsafter I cocked them up hahaha!  I then made paper leaves & a wing.  These are the elements that I used...

The Welcome Bird Hanging as it comes...


The fabulous masks...

The Cogs (used around the eyes, body and the letters)


The Bamboo  (used in blue around the tummy & back)

The Stitch  (used on tail & on tummy & neck)


There is now a large selection of masks to choose from and they are incredibly sturdy & scrub up really well!
For stockists please click on the tab at the top of the page.

Thank you for taking a looksee today, HUGS xxx
