Blue Tit


 
   There is a new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More, the theme of which is 'something old, something new'. I hope you will be able to join us.
   I have chosen to use an old favourite stamp, Jayne Netley Mayhew's blue tit from Joanna Sheen, but I have tried a new technique - that of colouring using water colour pencils. After colouring and allowing the image to dry I cut it out and shaped it slightly.
   I matted and layered paper printed using a House Mouse CD ROM (another old favourite) from Joanna Sheen onto pink mirri card and white card. I then matted white card onto pink mirri card, both cut out using Spellbinders dies, attached it to the card and then fixed the image to the circle using glue gel.
   I used a die from a new set of Tattered Lace dies called starlight circle to cut two floral pieces from a hint of silver centura pearl card. I coloured these pieces using Promarkers before fixing them to the edge of the circle. Finally using Tattered Lace dies I cut a sentiment from the pink mirri card.
 
   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Without Words - dreaming of spring
   Lisa B. Designs - anything goes (not Christmas)
   Stamping Sensations - dies and punches
   Winter Wonderland - things with wings
   Papertake Weekly - anything goes
   Glitter n Sparkle - include some pink
   Loves Rubber Stamps - anything goes
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
   Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes
   Scribble & Scrap - anything goes
   Fantasy Stampers - happy birthday
   Party Time Tuesday - anything goes

  14. What a sweet bird, and a beautiful card. Whenever I see a bird card, it reminds me of the Bible verse that talks about how God takes care of the birds, and they don't ever starve because He provides food for them. And, how much more important WE, as humans, are to God. He surely loves us even more, and will always provide for us. It's a beautiful reminder of His great love for us when I see a bird card. So, thanks VERY MUCH for sharing with us!
    God bless you,
