How are you all getting on? I am enjoying the lovely weather we are having. There are two lots of washing out drying on the line. I just love it when the weather is fine enough to do this. I also noticed that we have a Blue-tit nesting in one of our nest boxes.
Yesterday I heard some good news that one of my work colleagues has just got engaged (isn't Facebook wonderful?). I made a quick card for her and her fiance.
I have had the Clarity Lovebird stamp for a while and it leapt to mind when I started to think about this card. When I was looking through my Clarity folder I spotted the Lady's Mantle stamp.
I stamped the birds first with black Archival and heat emobossed them with a sparkly black embossing powder. The birds were coloured with Promarkers. Round the edge I stamped the Clarity Lady's Mantle stamp with Seedless Preservers Distress ink and then heat embossed with a clear powder. The birds were covered with a circle mask and I used three shades of Distress ink to ink over the page. Finally I added some blue distress ink round the birds. I matted the piece onto a dark blue mat. The finished card is 6" x 6".
I don't usually make cards like this but I was quite pleased with how this one turned out. I think I will be having a go again soon. I kept thinking about how I could change the design.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
