More fun to ‘crow’ about!

I’ve had a blast this evening with those naughty birds, the Crows! Created by Hand = Versamark and My Time to Craft = Birds, so I made 3 ATCs combining these two challenges… I used Versamark ink to stamp the images and then blotted chalk onto them, which was fun! The backgrounds are from SOYB’s ‘Poured paint’ challenge, on watercolour paper. All stamped images are from Diva Impressions – love ’em!

Meet Cherry Crow (well she’s red, isn’t she?):

And here’s Sheryl Crow – Queen of Crows and Country Music!

And here are the Mob… ‘Rent-a-crow’! (complete with Party Hats!!!)

Then I sat down to relax with Barbara‘s pastels and got extremely messy ‘Celebrating the Sea’ for Laura’s Layers of Color challenge. Meet Oliver the Octopus:

He’s a sweetie, isn’t he?! 🙂

    Why- dont i say that EVERY time i comment?
    Is there any other word TO say?
    But dood i am so OBSESSED with Oliver the Octopus!
    I want to marry him! hehe
    AWESOME work!

  5. Oliver is a handsome guy! Now if he could just keep those eight arms to himself….

    I am so glad you can use those! They frustrate the *heck* out of me. I just can’t stand the dust!! But if something as wonderful as Oliver can come from them, then glad they’re at your house and not mine!!

    I love your crows! I love crows!! We had a lawn-full this afternoon. Tomorrow when I look outside I’m going to imagine each one of them in party hats!! Great stuff you’re doing, Rosie!! I don’t know where you find the time!!!
