A little bird....

Hi Everyone;

Friday is here again and what's more it's a long weekend.  This means that there is more time to spend with family as well as more playtime. 

This week I went outside of my comfort zone and dug out other dies besides circles, squares and ovals, a cloud stencil and some distress inks.  It has been a long time since I have used these and it is time to use and play with them again.  Oh the possibilities.

For today's card, I have used the adorable Gotcha and a Bird Told Me; both from High Hopes Stamps.

After stamping and colouring the image with Copic Markers, I cut it out using an distress edges die.  Using a mini cloud edges stencil and Salty Ocean Distress Ink, I created some clouds that didn't quite come out as I was expecting them to.  I definitely need some practice.  The extra grass is from another die that has been unused for a very long time.

  • Stamps:  Gotcha (R115), Bird Told Me (F251) -- High Hopes Stamps
