Hello once again. A new challenge has started at The Alphabet Challenge, We have reached the letter ‘B’, and the theme chosen by Melanie is ‘Birds’. Here is my card:
I wasn’t quite sure which way I was going with this theme – but when I searched through the Color My Life app – I realised I had lots and lots of stamps which had birds – some in sets, some alone – but this particular set from Clearly besotted caught my eye.
I stamped the owl images and the books with Gina K amalgam ink – a brown ink – then coloured with Copics. I used the warm greys for the owls, and played with some vibrant colours for the books. The owls had the matching die set, but the books I cut with the Brother Scan’n’cut – all good…..
I played around with placing, and decided they needed a little grounding, so I used the Heffy Doodle ‘More Strips of Ease’ dies and cut some shelves using some wood grain paper.
The sentiment is also from Clearly Besotted, and I placed it so it looked like one of the owls was pointing to it……or maybe that’s just how my mind worked!
Forgive the light rays – I had the window shutters open a little and didn’t realise – but I think it adds something…..again – maybe it’s the way my mind works!
I hope you can come and join us for our ‘B for Bird’ theme – I look forward to seeing your creations. xx
