For this weeks challenge I have stamped the bird image by Stampers Anonymous with black versafine, adding some detail with the glossy accents and added a blue gem to his eye. Then I stamped the Inkadinkado quote stamp in the same versafine ink and three of the gems were added - this was then mounted onto holographic silver card. I then layered up three different background papers and added a ribbon.
I stamped my Lily stamp "My Little Friend" and coloured her with distress inks and I also stamped and coloured some birds from a OneFourZero theme plate. The saying "A little birdie told me" was hand written and I added assorted papers, wire and flowers. I finally edged all of the panels with a brown marker for definition.
I have made my card using an Owl stamp of unknown origin and a set of stamps from Stampin Up called ' The Art of Life'. I have embossed images as I go along creating a scene. Inks have been sponged on in Adirondack Butterscotch, Terracotta, Ginger, Espresso and Black. Mounted 3D over coordinating card stock.
I painted a piece of card with gold ink and then cut out lots of squares in different shapes and sizes. I painted each one and then decorated with lots of beads and sequins. I printed out some words and distressed with ink. For my bird I used a clipart image and painted over the top.
I stamped the peacock image with turquoise ink onto white card then embossed it with turquoise sparkle powder. I then colour washed the background and highlighted the 'spots' with twinkling H2O's. I mounted the image onto co-ordinating cardstock. I scored a piece of A4 acetate to make an A5 base. I coloured 4 corner peel-off's with a turquoise permanent marker and placed these on each corner of the acetate base, then mounted the image in the centre. On the inside (with the colour facing out) I glued a piece of green pearl paper.
I stamped my image and watercoloured it in. I matted it onto co-ordinating paper and added a strip of patterned paper down the side. I punched out some flowers and added Copper Stickles to the centres, and printed out a message on the PC, and finally inked round the edge of my card with Distress Ink.
