Hello everyone. I was suppose to be teaching my first of two classes tonight but unfortunately it was cancelled due to a potential winter storm, it has been postponed to March 9. So this gave me a 'free' night so I decided to post a card I made on Monday.
For my card, I'm using a digital image from Digistamps 4 you. I just love these cute birds, there is just something about them that makes me smile.
After re-sizing I coloured the birdie using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol. This was then cut out using an oval spellbinder die and layered onto some white cardstock cut using spellbinders timeless rectangle die.
For the background paper I did some water colouring. I taped down my TH water colour paper, and completely wet it down with my paint brush. I applied some distress ink to an acrylic block, then picked up the colours using a wet paint brush, then laid the colours onto the wet water colour paper. With the paper being wet, the colours tend to move and bleed - love the effect this give. I heat set it and then went back in and added some more ink to add some deeper shades. This was then cut using a MFT stitched rectangle die. I then layered this onto my card base.
I added some fun foam to the back of the timeless rectangle die cut to give it some dimension. Some purple and blue sequins were added as well as some glitter to the hearts on the present to finish this off.
