Kingfisher Blue


I'm sharing some of my cards made for the May show on Hochanda.
The stamps I used are from the Kingfisher Song, Sticks and Stones and Trees a Crowd stamp sets.

I love Kingfishers. I live close to a canal and have been lucky enough to spot one, but not for a long time.

My first card uses the lovely medium sized Kingfisher from Kingfisher Song, I've stamped in Memento onto smooth cards and coloured with alcohol markers.I've die cut a simple frame and layered onto some design paper.

My next card I have used the same stamp along with some elements from Sticks and Stones and the main tree from Trees a Crowd. I stamped them all with VersaMark and embossed in silver. I made a moon by sponging VersaMark through Triple Circle stencil and embossing. I mat and layered onto some silver Mirror card and then put onto a black 8x8 card blank.

My last one is on a canvas board. I stamped the large Kingfisher using my stamping platform. I left the stamp in place on the platform whilst I coloured the image in with acrylic paints. I then re-stamped to get all the detail back. I masked the Kingfisher and repeated the technique with the other stamps.

Thanks for looking

  3. The kingfisher images are gorgeous Sandra and love the beautiful scene and elegant frame over the patterned paper on the first, and the dramatic look of silver EP on the black card again a great scenic look, and the last with the acrylic paints on to a canvas board which has worked well with painting and reintroducing the outlines. Wonderful creations! x

  4. Gorgeous cards Sandra. I love them all but especially the simplicity of your first card. They are all coloured beautifully x
