Hi Everyone, my card for
I had a looky through my files, then the stamps I have and decided on the bird on a spade handle! It took me a while to put it together as the theme is snow, so I tried, what a lot of you do, and watercolour brushed the background. I have to say I am pretty pleased with myself, it's something I have tried over and over to do and failed, but it seems to have worked on this background, I even masked the bird and handle off, to do it. I may make a stamper after all - well, maybe! I can only hope.
I then decided to add a snow background with a stencil I have, but it didn't work, so I used a glue pen through the holes and added silver glitter, I thought it may have spoiled it, so I added white pen onto the glitter, mmmm! it seems to have hidden a bit of glitter. I cut it all out using a die added it to silver mirror card and it was done.
(The card looks curved as I hadn't flattened it in my Calibur, before taking the photo.)
