Kingfishers (by Veronica)

 Today I have a card to share using the kingfisher song and sticks and stones stamp sets -at least I hope so. Brenda passed on the information that there is a new version of blogger, that we will all have to use from the end of the month. Now i am not the best computer person at anything new , so thought I ought to try the new version while there was still the option to use the one that works! It took me 5 minutes to work out how to start a new post ( a big red + button at the bottom of the screen, so obvious after you've tried everything at the top) 

Back to the easy bit, stamping!
I used a piece of the drawing cartridge to stamp the reeds using grey versafine ink, then masked them off with masking fluid before stamping the smaller kingfisher. The large branch was stamped on the left using black versafine. Used watercolour paints to colour the image, with light washes for the sky , grass and water. The large kingfisher was stamped onto another piece of cartridge using black versafine again, painted, cut out and glued in place on his branch.
Added a mat of black. The white base card was stamped using the bridge image at the top left and the reeds at the bottom right, this time coloured with distress markers so I got  multicololur images


  1. I could be looking at a photo, what wonderful colouring. I've just had the stone etc stamps, I just hope I am able to do something as good as you.
    Take care

  2. A beautiful scene Veronica including that prettily coloured kingfisher and a great background too. I haven't tried the new blogger yet but will have to take the plunge soon. x

  3. A very beautiful and peaceful scene x
