Can I just reiterate how much I LOVE my Stamposaurus brickwork stencil?!

For this card I used 3 colours of Glimmer Mists- Olive Vine with the brickwork stencil, Tattered Rose and Sunflower on the die-cut birds. That’s my entire collection of mists! Then I stamped the birds with a paisley print stamp from Blade Rubber and perched them on some baker’s twine (Simply Cards and Papercraft freebie). The background paper is Basic Grey. I had made a background with Distress Inks and the paisley stamp but it just didn’t look right in the end.

The sentiment and embellishments are clear epoxy stickers stuck onto paper. I bought a load of these years ago and they have yellowed, but I don’t think that matters for a grungy project like this.

Why ‘yearning’? I rooted round for word embellishments or stamps and this was the only one I liked on this project.  I don’t suppose I’ll be able to send it to anyone for their birthday though, as they’ll wonder what it means!! What am I yearning for? More Stamposaurus stencils!
