Hello everyone! Hope you’re enjoying a wonderful weekend!
Today I’m joining in Alex Syberia February 2021 Release Instagram Hop. She is releasing awesome collection of digital stamps on her Etsy shop again! To celebrate the new release she has organized a fun Instagram hop with lots of fellow crafters! I’m so happy to be a part of this hop! For inspiration and giveaway infos please hop over to Instagram.
My card is featuring Beautiful Day A2 Card panel digital stamp. It shows a sweet songbird sitting in a gorgeous flower bed.
I printed the image on Canson watercolor paper and started coloring the flowers first using Karin brush markers. I used a clear glitter pen to blend the color. I colored some flowers in coral pink and some in purple.
Before coloring the bird I googled and thought a bluebird would fit in my bright floral bed. I colored the head, back and the wing of the bluebird in Cyan and Sky Blue and the chest in brown-yellow. After the watercoloring was done I added some shades using Prismacolor colored pencils. I also colored the background area around the bluebird in white pencil to brighten it.
I splattered white ink on the top part of the panel and let it dry. To add the sentiment from Ribbons Affirmations set (The Ton) I added a strip of vellum to the panel. The sentiment was partly (one layer) heat embossed in gold and partly (the second layer) stamped in Aspen Cocoa. I foam mounted the colored panel on a white cardbase and the sentiment on the vellum. Lastly the card was embellished with a few clear sequins.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy hopping!
