Golden Dawn - by Penny

Goodly morning peeps, I hope this finds you all well and warm today.  I'm back today with my second post of this month, a cheerful card from the December tv shows featuring the beautiful Bird stamps.  So for this project I have used stamps from the Let Your Heart Sing, Dawn Chorus, and Live Out Loud  sets; Distress Inks, Versamark ink and gold EP.

I took a piece of white card and, using a couple of stencils from my stash I created a scenic background with a bright sunburst created with Distress Inks.  

I then stamped the Dawn Chorus collage image at the bottom of the panel using Versamark ink and embossed it in gold.  I repeated the process with two bird in the grass images.  I wanted the images to be seen clearly above the first one, so after embossing them I lengthened the grass on one of the images by painting an extension with a fine brush and glycerine, then embossed it as normal.  I stamped and embossed the poem at the top of the panel and added gold pen around the edges of the panel.   

I matted the panel onto black card and set it aside.  On a white base card I stamped several worker stamps from all the sets around the edges with DI then attached the focal panel to it.

Thank you for popping in today and spending a few minutes with me and these beautiful stamps.  I'll be back later in the month with some more crafty fun and inspiration.

Take care until next time
