Spring Birds Card

Hi everyone. Today's card is my last sample from this month's Claritystamp show on Create and Craft TV.

It's nice and bright and cheerful, just like a Spring day.

I began by stamping the birds and sentiment in place. I then covered them up with a thick piece of plastic and sponged Grunge Past through the stencil to create the brick wall below. The plastic keeps the work above clean and gives me something to spread the paste from.

When the wall was dry I cut a circular moon mask with one of my Spellbinders dies and placed it inside the text.

I then put the outside part of the Post-it back around it and removed the middle.............. that I could work on the sun, knowing that the mask was central to the text.

I then swapped the masks back over and added one to the birds so that I could work on the sky.

Once that was done I masked off the top section and brushed several shades of Distress Ink onto the Grunge Paste wall and sanded it a bit.

To finish it off I cut out some flowers, coloured them in with Spectrum Noir pencils and stuck them on with Pinflair glue gel. The birds are coloured in the same way.

Stamps and Stencil Used

I'll be back on Sunday with one of my Mother's Day cards. It's the first of a few personal cards that I have to share with you.

I'm off to choose what to cook for dinner now - I went to the GNPE in Harrogate earlier. I bought a few crafty goodies but I got rather carried away at the big Sainsbury's afterwards. It's not normally a shop I use so there were lots of new yummy looking things to try and quite a few of them went in my trolley! I think there must be something wrong with me, enjoying a trip to a supermarket more than a trip to a craft show. lol  I do like my food though!
