Birds - A Card for 4 Challenges
Here is a card for 4 challenges: Totally Papercrafts #50 - Add a Heart, Crafty Catz Challenge #66 - Forgotten Stamp, Crafty Creations Challenge # 102 - It's a Bird Thing, and finally Crafty Cardmakers - Spotlight on Pencils.
The card is based on dark green hammered card, A5 in size. The backing layer was cream card that was sprayed with 3 colours of green glimmer mist and the polka dots were applied using metallic green paint through sequin waste.
The forgotten stamp is the large image, from Elusive images which I used a lot a couple of years ago but haven't used for ages. This is part of the bird element for 'it's a bird thing'. I stamped this onto white card and coloured it with Inktense pencils from Derwent. I used a blender pencil and burnisher to help blend the colours and to smooth the image out.
The two small hearts are from a free stamp from Craft Stamper designed by Elusive Images again. These were coloured in the same way as the main image.
To assemble, the background player was cut to size and the ribbons added before bonding it to the base card. The main image was added followed by the two hearts and finally the 3 groups of 3 sticky backed gems were attached for a bit of bling.
I think that about does it so I hope you like it.
