Handmade Artsy Stickers

Set 1 of my handmade stickers

 My first time making my own artsy stickers! 
I created these for a swap on swap-bot. 
I used my gelli plate to make my backgrounds onto a sticky label. 
Added diecut words, a punched butterfly, a heart and a stamped bird that I fussy cut.
Doodling was done with a white pen.

(The extra white around the edges is not part of the sticker. It's the backing.)

Button Bird

I started this with a piece of wood and wire.
 I painted several coats on the wood, including crackle paint to try and give it a distressed look.

Finally, I added a button for his eye.
