A gaggle of Geese

Good evening to you all.

I've had a very busy but very productive day today and one of those things I had to do was pack up for posting tomorrow my samples for the next show...I can't believe how quick this year is flying by.

Mind you I can't believe that its now two years since I was asked by Barbara to be on her team. I am still as proud as punch to be a part of the Clarity team

This card is one I did for the last show and took a lot of masking and then colouring but I do think the result is worth all the effort. I used pebeo masking fluid for some of the was easier then cutting out masks form post it notes. I used the masks that came with the stamps first then the fluid for the rest!

I used brushes to do the rest of the background masking off the sky and using the clouds mask.I masked off the water then added some hills then the water then the ground the geese were on. I added the grassy reeds and on the far bank of the river I used a brown fine liner pen to add the grasses.

I stamped the geese flying and a bit of shadow round the feet. Then I removed all the masks off the geese and coloured them with Spectrum Noir pencils.

I matted it onto black then onto a white card blank.

The sentiment was added by me writing Have a Gaggle on Your Birthday onto a little banner I cut from an off cut of card and sticking it at the bottom of the card.

This was my favourite of my samples last month.

Please let me know what you think of it by leaving me a comment below.

Have a lovely evening
Happy Crafting
