Bird & Stencil

Hi Everyone, another stencil card made at the same time as this one, so colours the same. I had it hanging about, then I saw some stencil cards on the web stamping in black on a stencil, that's all I needed, so off to find a NBUS (as Darnell would say). Of course it was NBUS, it was a stamp LOL. Anyhow I stamped it with Stazon, the only black I have and Versamark watermark ink with clear emboss powder to make it gloss.

I then added a more colouring to the bird to make him stand out a little more. Layered it onto black card, but decided the edge needed to be narrower. I liked the look of the thin cut black card and decided to use it, goodness knows how the corner came together, but it did and I think it looks OK?

Beautiful scene and I particularly like the geometric corner that compliments the stenciling perfectly.

Not only does that stamp look great over those stenciled colors, the corner design caught my eye instantly! Beautiful design!

LOL at you Faith - you always say you're not a stamper but you're pretty efficient at it if you ask me! Love the idea of stamping in black over a stencilled image and think your criss-crossing lines in the corner is a really effective embellishment.

Wow Faith, this is an amazing card! I am loving your stenciling and I am loving that image. Yay for you using a NBUS stamp! I like the color you added to it. But what I love is the narrow strips of cardstock that made that cool corner piece to your card. That looks amazing!!! Hugs, Brenda

Such a lovely card - and wonderful idea to stamp over the stencil like that! I’m glad you coloured the bird a bit more. He stands out wonderfully now!
