And if you are in the UK, like me, you are lucky to have a long Bank Holiday weekend! One extra day for crafting. Woo Hoo!! ^_^
I used the sketch at Just Add Ink #260 this week to create a birthday card for my Auntie.
She loves birds. She has a bird bath in her garden where we can see little birdies having a paddle and a wash. It is amazing to watch those little creatures and quite therapeutic too. So I decided to use this bird stamp from Spellbinders Garden Collection, which came as a free gift from the Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine, as my main image. Here is the card:
I followed the sketch closely. For the sentiment, I used The Big, the Bold and the Happy stamp set from Winnie & Walter. I also added some gem stones around the sentiment.
I am no bird expert. I can't tell you what bird this is and what colour it should be. As I already picked my background papers, I just went with the blue and pink colours for my stamped bird image. Here is a close up picture of the image:
To emphasise the image, I used the die from Nellie's Multi Frame's and die cut this scalloped circle shape from a blue holograph mirror card. The image was stuck flat on the mirror card circle and then I used a fun foam sheet to prop it up on the card to give dimension. No card is finished without adding some glitters!
That's it for now. Hope to see you soon.
