This is my second card as February Guest Designer for Artful Times and the theme this time is 'Birds'.
I used one of my favourite techniques for this card - its also one of the most simple ones! I added three colours (Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Ripe Persimmon) of Distress Ink to an acrylic block, sprayed with a little water, then turned it over and pressed the block on to a piece of white card. Before lifting the block off, I gently lifted the sides of the block up and down a little to merge the colours. I dried the ink with a heat gun then stamped the bird and sentiment with black Archival ink. The sentiment was free with a magazine and the bird is from an Inkadinkado set called Birds Galore - I have not used either of these stamp sets before. I just matted on some contrasting card and job done. I have to say, I love how this turned out and has that real clean and simple look.
Please pop over to Artful Times and enter your 'Bird' projects - its a wonderful challenge blog and I would really like to thank Neet and Wendy for a fabulous month as Guest Designer!
This card fits into Hels fab challenge at Ink on my Fingers which is 'New' - both the stamps I have used are new to my stamp pad and never before used! Hels blog is fabulous too and definitely worth a visit.
Thank you for visiting me - two posts in two days - thats good for me! I appreciate you popping over to see me! Take care and have an awesome weekend. Christine xxx
