Hello and thanks for stopping by. The two cards I have today are both using the lovely Spring Bird stamp sets.
I started my first card by stamping the Bold Leafy Background onto my base card and coloured with brush markers. I added some stencil detail and Old Paper Distress ink to the edges. The bird design is taken from Spring Bird Tulip, which I stamped onto water colour card, coloured with brush markers and blended with a brush dipped into water. The image was cut out with a circle die and mounted onto a larger circle die cut that I had coloured with the brush markers to match with the little bird.
My second card is stamped with Spring Bird Crocus. I die cut a circle from some copier paper to act as a mask. I placed the copier paper over the base card so that the bird design could be stamped through the hole left from the die cut. Once you have coloured the bird (I used Polychromos pencils), place the circle, that was cut earlier, over the bird so that you can stamp the Bold Leafy Background over the top and blend your Distress inks. I used the tiny little stick design from Sticks and Stones to create a border and then added spodges of white paint pen for interest.
Thank you for reading, please call back soon to catch some more Design Team inspiration.
