Good Morning all, and welcome to another week.
Today is rather exciting for me as im sharing my first design team creation for
Make My Monday challenge blog.
The theme this time is BIRDS so if you fancy joining in pop over click here! for more details and to see the other team member gorgeous projects.
Ive been itching to use the crazy bird stamps i got for Christmas, so when i saw it was birds i knew what i wanted to do. I had earlier found these feathers in the back of my craftdrobe so thought they would add the perfect touch. So my love birds were started.
A5 card size. First i stamped the birds using blue ink and simply coloured with blue and yellow inks, glossy accents on the eyes. I then glued on blue and yellow feathers for the tails and wings. I added the yellow to break up the colour. For the background, I first die cut a heart to use as a stencil (see below), i then stamped the woodgrain through the heart onto my background using the same blue ink. Gently edged the heart with the yellow ink. I then stamped the grunge stamps across the panel in blue, just to add interest. Edged with yellow ink. Mounted onto navy cardstock to frame and white base card.
Showing close up detail, the birds are very dimensional and the background completely flat. The 'love' came from a 'with love' stamp, i just inked up the love part, then die cut into a small heart and covered with glossy accents.
This is showing the stencil i made and stamped through. You can easily use any shape you fancy.
