Hello bloggers, this week I'm certainly detecting a little sign of spring in the air. Listening to the birds singing in the morning inspired me to whip up a project that reminded me of that famous song!
I used stamps from Carabelle Studios, Zorrotte, Heart & Bird along with Birgit Koopsens Scribbled leafs and textured circles
I stamped on some background stamping, using permanent ink, onto some plain white card stock. Over this I blended a combination of Peacock feathers, Salty Ocean, Broken China & cracked pistachio Distress Oxides over card and then wiped through stencils with a baby wipe to remove some of the ink. I also added in some patches of Hickory Smoke oxides.
Using some white acrylic paint I stencilled on some some circles. I dried the circles, replaced the stencil and bumped it over to gently add some Wilted Viotlet Distress Ink.
I cut my card into my desired shape and added some stamping using the scribbled leaves and textured circles set. I used a watermark ink and heat embossed with white opaque powder. Using wilted violet again, I edged the individual cards.
You might have noticed that one of my little birds is facing the opposite way! I stamped the bird onto my Gelli Plate and took a reverse print off of the plate, bonus, two stamps for the price of one! I stamped the other birds the normal way, colouring them all with Neocolour II crayons and coloured pencils.
I do hope you have enjoyed your visit to the blog today?
