Hello everyone! Today's card is one I did a while ago, but never got around to posting it. The stamp is from Penny Black called Aviary. When this was released I knew I just had to have it being it had both florals and birds!
I started by stamping this onto some watercolour paper and then used my Zig markers to colour.
When I was done colouring I pulled out my Polychromos pencils to add some shading especially on the birdhouse. This was actually my second attempt of this image, the first one I ruined by trying to watercolour the ground area and it was a disaster, so in the garbage it went. For this one, which was my 2nd attempt, I decided to pull out my MFT brick stencil and sponged some distress antique linen, walnut stain and frayed burlap, for the ground area. I did mask off the flower pots before doing so. I then sponged around the sides and top with some distress peacock feathers.
To finish off I added a couple of banner tags in the corner, silk ribbon, and some clear sequins.
Hope you're having a good week so far. Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
