The Garden birds caused a bit of a stir and a bit of hilarity among the design team and also the regular readers of Barbara's blog. We were all waiting for giggles on the show regarding the Blue tit set but Barbara was professional as always and didn't once use the tit word in the whole show.
Anyway here are the two cards I made using this set of stamps.
This one was done on parchment. The Bird was stamped in blue ink then embossed in clear powder.
It was then coloured from the back to add shading and dimension.
The feeder was stamped in black on the back and then dry embossed with a fine ball tool onto a mouse mat.
The branch is actually half of the split tree.
I then put the parchment onto a piece of double sided adhesive sheet and attached it to a piece of grey card stock. Then it was matted onto a piece of blue then
attached to a card blank.
The next card was made using a Gelli print I had kept from a Gelli plate session and I had used the doves stencil to to it. I trimmed the edges as I didn't want the white edges on...It wasn't even which was probably why I didn't use it originally. I used the blossom and the small birds to create a little scene and added clouds very gently behind them.
I coloured this with promarkers and edged the central square with a brown fine liner pen.
I matted and layered this onto brown then blue card then onto an 8 x 8 card blank.
I do like these stamps and am so glad they have been so popular!
Hope you have a good evening! Leave me a message if you can.
