Birds of a Feather (by Zoe)

Good morning and Happy New Year, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

Today I'm sharing 3 samples I made for the fab Hochanda show last month featuring the wonderful bird themed stamp sets.

My first card I created the background on a pearlescent card by sprinkling Brushos onto some wrinkled up cling film and spritzing with Gold mica and water mixture, laying onto the card and leaving to almost dry before peeling off the cling film to reveal a stunning shimmery marble effect. Once completely dry I stamped using a Versamark inkpad and heat embossing with white embossing powder. To finish off I coloured parts of the feathers with a silver pen.

My next 2 cards as you can see are Christmas cards which I used a circle as a mask and Distress Inks to create a Wintery scene, on linen textured card. I used simple stamping, a bit of red pencil for the breast, and some chunky embossing powder randomly sprinkled and heated from behind to create a snowfall. I love using linen texture card for simple cards as I think it just adds that little bit of elegance.

I hope you like my creations?
Back later in the month with some more samples.
Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
