Sunny Days and a Bird Card



Another gorgeous day here in Ontario….but it will be short lived as they are calling for rain tomorrow and Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday! Friday will be the only rain free day at this point. So glad we got a bike ride in today – almost 29km today at Rondeau Park. I mentioned the fierce thunderstorms that we had Sunday night and it turns out that more rain fell during the storm then we normally get in a month! No wonder there was so much flooding. June had already broken the record for the amount of rain fall before the thunderstorm too. It’s been a wet one and now they (so called experts) are saying July and August are going to be record breaking hot and humid temperatures. Can’t win!

Today’s card is another one made with one of Tim Holtz’s crazy bird stamp.

The bird was stamped with Rangers Archival ink on plain white cardstock but the image and background were painted with water colour paints. As long as you don’t saturate the cardstock it works well. This bird seemed to be staring off into space so I added the “thinking of you” peel-off silver sentiment and the fancy silver line under it. The card base is Stampin’ Up, Night of Navy I think, and is folded at the top. Then I added a piece of designer paper cut a little smaller and then the stamped and coloured image. The edges of the stamped panel were inked with the Night of Navy stamp pad.

By the way, if you are a regular reader of my blog, you may recall that I complain sometimes that the camera seems to change the colour of some of the paper so things do not look like they match. Well, I took the camera into the shop on Tuesday and it turns out someone (and I’m the only one that uses it) accidently changed a setting on it that did indeed adjust colours. Ooops. But the fellow was nice enough to show me how it happened and how to correct it. Nice people at Henry’s Camera.

That’s all for what was a sunny warm Wednesday,

Cheers
Violet
