First A Bird’s Life, and a wonderful New Home card.
Hello, and welcome! Today I am using the ever so sweet Sunny Studio’s A Bird’s Life stamp set. This is a perfect stamp set for a variety of occasions. Today I am using it to make a card for a friend who just moved! So let’s get started.
First I distressed the background with my Clarity brushes, and the MFT Mini Cloud Edges stencil. For this project I used two of my favourite Distress Ink colors. First I applied Tumbled Glass on Bristol paper for the clouds. I used a pretty light hand as I wanted a pastel, puffy cloud effect.
For the rolling hills I used MFT Snow Drifts die, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. Again using my Clarity brushes to get a beautiful soft green effect. I love using these brushes! It makes blending a breeze. I also added a fair bit of colour to the edges of the Bristol to give a bit of definition to the hills.
Next I pulled out my Copic markers to color all of my images. I did simple coloring using 2 – 3 color combinations.
Here is a list of the Copic colors I used:
Birds Y00 Y02. Birdhouses B00 B01 B02, R81 R83 R85, Y11 Y13 Y15. Nest E50 E53 E55. Branch E55 E57 E59. Leaves BG10 BG11 BG13. Greys C1 C3 C6.
What a cute touch to have this adorable little bird in the nest 🙂
To add dimension I used strips of Darice adhesive foam. I love these strips for smaller pieces I’m trying to adhere. These strips have a great strong adhesive that hold up well even through the mail. Here I used this foam for the birds, the yellow bird house, and the nest.
I added lots of Wink Of Stella to the birds, houses, nest and leaves. To finish off this card I added a few sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Easter Sequins mix. This completes my card for today.
I hope you enjoy your day wherever you are, and are surrounded by sunshine!
Until next time,
