Mrs Duck this week with an oldie Friday. A colleague last year requested I make a fortieth card for her friend who is a ranger at a nature reserve and who's favourite bird is the bittern. I started off by finding a copyright free image of the bird which was in black and white, so I printed it off and coloured it in with co pics. The centre panel is a Sheena Douglass stamp, again coloured in with copics and I added some foliage to the tree. The side panels are another Sheena Douglass stamp which I cut in two. The leaves and twigs were from a Tim Holtz die and I used coredinations card-stock to mat and layer, and to cut the numbers. The base stepper card was from craftwork cards. Apparently the recipient loved it. Yay!
