What a nosey pair!

Good Morning. 
It's a lot cooler today and I don't know if we had a storm in the night...I was out for the count all night. I think the fact that I had been at work all day, then worked hard for an hour at the gym then went out to a party where I did consume alcohol and was dancing, finally caught up with me and knocked me out! 
Today I am having a bit of a lazy day at home but I will be crafting in a bit with good reason which I can't go into here!

Tomorrow is of course the best Sunday of the month....Claritystamp show on Create and craft where Barbara will be showcasing the new Christmas stamps and Groovi plate items. You are in for a treat I am sure. 

So today I thought I would share with you a card I did for last months show using the shaped aperture stencils and the geese stamp

I started off attaching the stencil to a piece of watercolour card and then I created a scene inside the aperture using my watercolour paints. I wanted mountains and hills in the distance and then water. I added a bit of detail of reeds on the far bank. Once this was dry I used a fineliner pen to draw the shape through the aperture.
I drew the stones around the window and coloured them in with the paints
I added some stone bricks too to and the grass at the bottom for the geese to stand on. 
I stamped the pair of geese onto a scrap of watercolour card then painted them. 
I matted the background onto some black card then onto a card blank then added the geese using foam pads to make then stand out. I love how they look as if they are having a good old nosey through the window!

Have a fabulous weekend what ever you are doing.
Happy Crafting
