I stamped the Puffin on a piece of Stamping Card using Memento Nautical Blue, and dragged the ink in with a waterbrush to give it some shading, and I also added a touch of Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves. I cut an aperture out of a square white card using a S/B Rounded Squares die, and then cut a frame with the same set of dies, from navy blue cardstock. I placed the frame round the opening and then fixed the Puffin behind the aperture glued to the front of the card and made tidy by placing a piece of white cardstock over the reverse. I then stamped some of the shells on to snippets/scraps of white stamping card using the Memento Nautical Blue, and coloured them again by using a waterbrush with the same inks as above. I cut them out and stuck them to the card with some Pinflair dimensional glue gel. I then stamped a sentiment and the three birds.
I hope that everyone whose year has started badly with the atrocious weather that seems to be affecting people here, and also across the globe, in one form of another, will soon see some improvement. Anyway, I send my best wishes to you all.
