I missed last week's Think Monday - Think ATC challenge because I was away, so I was very pleased to see that this week's theme is "Birds" - a nice easy challenge! Once again I pulled out my Oxford Impressions stamps - this time "The Birds' Nest" collection. Another great plate of unmounted images that I have used so much. Apart from stamping this ATC uses Adirondack Color Washes and some Moon Shadow Mist (which of course doesn't show up on the scan but which adds a lovely golden glow in real life). The bird image is a bit spotty (speckled?) as I used quite textured water colour paper - not a great stamping surface but so nice to colour!
I'm off to Esperance for a quick work trip today and will be back tomorrow evening. Esperance is a four hour drive away but it is our closest beach so it will be lovely to look at the ocean and breathe some sea air. Hopefully I'll manage a walk on the beach as well - nothing quite like beautiful white beach sand between your toes.
