Kingfishers



   I love kingfishers and really like this particular image.
   I matted and layered the paper printed from Pollyanna Pickerings British Wildlife DVD ROM from Creative Crafter's World onto dark turquoise mirri card and white card having first wrapped black ribbon around the lower half of the paper. I then attached a bow and some gems to the ribbon.
   The main image was printed from the same DVD ROM and I matted this onto the mirri card which had been cut out using a Spellbinders heart circle die. I stamped the flying kingfisher using a stamp from Joanna Sheen's Jayne Netley Mayhew collection and coloured it using Promarkers. I then glittered the wings.
   The sentiment was created by using another one of the heart circle dies, a circle die, peel offs and a glittery button.

  2. I love kingfishers too, and what a gorgeous image this is! It's beautifully set off by the kingfisher blue diecut, and I like the fact that embellishments are kept to a minimum so as not to detract from the image. A really lovely card. Thank you for sharing it with us at Stamping Sensations this month.

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the fabulous diecut circle beneath that pretty image and the way the other kingfisher is flying in over the diecut edge is perfect.
