Hello there I am hosting the new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz. I have chosen the theme ‘Things With Wings’. I chose this theme as I know there are lots and lots of choices here – from birds, to dragons, to fairies – it can be real of fantasy – the choice is yours as long as there are wings.
Here is my card:
I wanted to use this cute duck stamp set from Time For Tea Designs, as I thought they were quirky and fun to use for the valentine’s day card for hubby.
Once the duck images were stamped, coloured, then die cut, I worked on the scene. The additional lily pads and pond grass are from a Sunny Studio stamp set.
The grass was cut from green card stock, and the edges blended with a green Distress Ink, the brown is supposed to represent the ground – die cut using a cloud die – and the edges of the brown card stock slightly inked with another Distress Ink.
The water is a patterned paper from my stash, and cut free-hand.
I used a small off-cut of the pond/water paper to put behind the sentiment to make it stand out a little more.
I hope you can come and join us with your ‘Things With Wings’ themed creations – I look forward to seeing what you come up with. xx
