Hi and welcome to my blog :) I have another CB sample to share with you today from the gorgeous Kingfisher collection. I have used stamps from CB Kingfisher Song, Sticks and Stones, Silhouette Grasses and Words to Dazzle and Sparkle sets; Distress Inks, Aquatints, grey Versafine ink, gold embossing powder, clear Sparkle pen.
I had already stamped all the images onto copy paper and cut them out, so I arranged all the images to make sure I'm happy with the composition. I took a piece of white card and stamped some of the images in grey ink, then masked them. I created a watercolour wash for the sky, faux bleached some clouds with water then removed the masking fluid. I used Distress Inks to watercolour the images and the river, then added some foreground with a piece of torn paper and DI's. I added Sparkle pen to the river, then I stamped the silhouette grasses across the bottom of the card and embossed them in gold.
The Kingfisher was painted in the same way and clear Sparkle pen used on top. I used a white gel pen to emphasise the markings on the bird. I die cut some leaves from card I had painted with pearl paints and added them to the branch. I matted the panel onto black card. I stamped the silhouette grasses around the edges of the base card and attached the panel. I stamped and embossed a sentiment in gold onto white card, cut it into a pennant and added DI around the edges, then attached it to the card.
I absolutely LOVE the bridge stamp, and all these stamps are perfect for scene building which is something I also love. This design is another great worker card, suitable for birthdays, retirement, get well cards and many more.
Thank you for vising my blog today, I hope you enjoyed this post and will pop in again :)
