fence sitting

Here's another smARTworks creation (a star on your nose if you know who drew those birdies!) - I've been wanting forever to put the birdies on a scrap strip fence, so here you go. :) Birds are stamped in Versamagic chalk ink and shaded a little with Prismacolor pencils.

The scraps are of equal width, and I cut the corner off another scrap of paper to use as a template for cutting, so that all the 'boards' would be uniform. If you were making a bigger fence, alternatively, you could use a tag punch. (like I did here)

So frustrated...wading through the legalities of stamp designing, and making sure all elements used are allowable for commerical use...turns out one image I had thought was public domain costs $100 to license for 2 years! Oops...back to the drawing board. Sigh...


  1. What a creative card! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

  2. Great card. The birdies are wonderful and very cool way of making the fence.

  3. What a beautiful creation. I love the way you made the fence. Hugs Marja
