Hi all. This card is for DH's brother and I used a recently bought set of stamps from Chocolate Baroque called Spring Bird Crocus which included this lovely bird which I think may be a Wren, so I have tried to give her the appropriate colours.
I was intending to enter this in the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge but unfortunately realised after I had made the card that by the time I could put the card up that particular challenge would be finished, but not to worry I enjoyed making it anyway.
I coloured the image with my favourite Spectrum Noir Pencils and decided to add just the hint of some scenery in the background. I did use the blending solution on the actual image and on the hills and sky in the background but decided to keep more texture in the bit of foreground behind the image to give it just a bit of texture though I didn't want it to take the attention away from the image too much.
I finished it with a sentiment stamped using Black Archival Ink.
Before I finish I would like to welcome a new follower Petra Swart. She is a very talented lady who is skilled in all sorts of crafts so please do go and take a look, and you can find her blog here.
Thank you for stopping by today.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS - Birds.
Addicted to Stamps - Clean and Simple.
Papertake Weekly - In the Garden. I hope this is not too obscure, but birds are found in the garden and although this does not look like a typical garden scene hopefully this will be acceptable.
