I threatened on Friday to show you my random colouring in if I managed to make it into anything. I was watching create and craft the other day when they were flogging watercolour pencils and so decided to drag my tin of pencils that I've had for about 20 years out of the cupboard and have a go.
I stamped the clarity bird in black archival on water colour paper and had a play. I obviously have no patience as I didn't always wait for the card to dry and so had some bleeding over the lines. Trusty scissors to the rescue!
In order to make it into a card I used a 6x6 card blank and a snippet of shaving foam and reinkers background that I'd used on another card (need to wait to show you that one!) I stamped the branch that came with the bird on the paper and coloured it in. I used a bit of gold mirri left over from another card (see tomorrow's post) to back it. I added the bird with foam tape to add a little dimension. After making the card I decided the bottom right was a little bare and so holding my breath I stamped a lili of the valley sentiment there.
I'm surviving with the pain at the moment, keeping focused on something rather than just watching TV helps as does ice cream! Little Ava is stable today, although still very poorly so your good thoughts must be helping, thank you.
I'm taking this card over to Snippets playground as the background and gold card are from the scraps pile.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
