oh my have I been busy its been all go since the middle of February - but I am loving it really lol.
I nearly didn't get chance to do a card for this challenge but it was my brother in law's birthday on Thursday so I tried to combine the two. Its so hard making cards for men don't you think. He loves the outdoors and walking but sadly had a stroke so cannot walk like he used to so I don't like to do a nice landscape or anything like that as I feel it is just rubbing it in so I decided to go with the birds and I didn't have much time as I made it the night before his birthday -
I do like these birds and after watching Paul on Sunday I decided to get out the burst powders from Ken Oliver.
This is miles away from all the clean groovi stuff I have been doing lately ...watch out for Barbara back on our screens Sunday and Monday - marvellous you mustn't miss it - get your cards out!!!
I stamped in black archival and used clear embossing powder a much safer option than black embossing powder.
I want to keep the birds white so that I can colour them with pencils
I wasn't bothered about the legs - these will be black
I decided to add a sun behind them
another mask - look where I have positioned it - I couldn't put it behind them as a rising sun so I just aligned it with the bottom of the birds feet ----didn't want to cut my moon mask up!
I added some blue at the top and sepia at the bottom (ish) well that was the plan lol
Sorry I did miss a step with the old phone camera
I then removed all the masks and gave them a wash whilst my colour dried.
Now it was time for a cover up job I just wanted to colour the moon
lots of mask, copy paper and low tack tape
Well its not a perfect circle and the blue isn't just in the sky but I like the randomness of colour bursts
I coloured in the birds with a mix of pink and blue layering them on top of each other to add to random style bit difficult to show
Anyway that's it a bit different lol....now what can I do for my other brother in law whose birthday is on Tuesday and I have to post it! blummin fellas ----I can feel a car coming on lol
