Hi there everybody. I have a birthday card to show today using another pretty bird stamp from Crafty Individuals called Bluebird and Branch with Berries. This may seem an odd choice of colours but as well as some other challenges I wanted to enter the Colour Hues Challenge and kraft and yellow were the colours for this...not colours I would normally have chosen but it's good to step outside your comfort zone sometimes.
I cut a piece of kraft card into a square and stamped the bird onto it using Versafine Vintage Sepia Ink and then heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I then used my set of Inktense Pencils to colour the bird in browns and the chest of the bird in yellow. I also added some hills in the background and some yellow on the horizon taking it up a bit to to add more interest. I also added a very little orange to the horizon and on the bird but it is basically yellow. I decided to use the pencils without any water as the kraft card isn't the easiest surface to work on and I thought that they worked better used without as I didn't want to dilute the colour too much.
I added a yellow background mat and the sentiment in the Vintage Sepia Ink and heat embossed with the Clear Gloss EP.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
