A Dramatic Card and Birds


This will be a long post because I first want to share some bird photos I took this week – in between rain drops! We had a very cold, windy and wet weekend. Today we are staying home and taking it easy.



Here are a few bird photos. The card is after these.


The wind was playing havoc with the bird's feathers.


You can tell how windy it was even in the bush.

This is one of Joe's favourite spring birds.

It's so hard to get a good photo of this bird. It seldom sits still at all so I was thrilled to get this one.

And now for the dramatic card!....at least I think its dramatic!


I decided I wanted to make as many different cards as I could using the Stampin’ Up High Tide stamp set my friend lent me. This one, obviously, is a masculine birthday card. The background is a piece of red cardstock that was run through a nautical themed embossing folder; then white ink was smeared across it just hitting the embossed areas. It is subtle but it just brings out the embossed areas a bit. The birds were stamped on a piece of water colour paper that was coloured with water colour paint. This was then glued to a piece of red cardstock – same as the embossed piece – and then onto the grey.



The tags were die cut with a QuicKutz die set using the same cardstock as above; tied with grey bakers twine and glued on. The sentiment is a peel-off.



That’s all for a sunny but still cool Monday May 8, 2017



Cheers
