Hello to every one, it has been a little while since I posted anything here, the reason being that I have a new computer and I am struggling to get to grips with a different system. This is the latest card I have made, and I have just about managed to crop it to post here. It is for my brother-in-law's birthday tomorrow. I used a Hobby Arts stamp which I bought last year to make Christmas cards with as it is meant to be a snowy scene. I think I managed to make one card with it and while doing so I thought that by using different colours it could be used for an alternative occasion. I stamped it onto a snippet of white card Memento Rich Cocoa ink and coloured it with Coloursoft pencils. I added some flying birds with an Inkylicious stamp, and used a Chocolate Baroque border stamp to add a little grassy interest to the foreground. I trimmed the image and matted it onto snippets of dark green and light green card. The base card is a white 15cm. square, and I stuck a piece of designer paper from a Lilly Of The Valley Country Lady pad to left hand side and fixed the image panel over it. For the stamping on the right I used a Chocolate Baroque pussy willow, stamped with the same brown ink, stamped twice without re-inking and added a little colour with a pencil. The birthday greeting is another CB stamp.
