Hello. Welcome. Over at Ett Trykk one of their 10year celebration challenges is a quick card or two. Now, that is something I often aspire to but seldom accomplish. Today was a happy mail day with a delivery from STAMPlorations which included a couple of their stencils. So I decided to see if I could do quick card with a stencil background and my favourite bird from Unity.
I cut 4 10cm square pieces of card and die cut three edges using my Simon Says Stamp Stitch Rectange die. I stamped a sentiment and then the bird from Unity Stamp Co. Swagger set on two of the card pieces. There are three sentiments with this cute bird. I have used two of them. The birds were coloured with watercolour pencils and a waterbrush.
I used STAMPlorations Happy Flower stencil and distress inks on the other two pieces of card. I bumped the stencil, a bit far on this red version!! It look a bit unfocused. Oops, crafty finger smudge in corner!! Less haste, more speed.......
I smudged the ink on this one using an eraser to draw the ink towards the edge of the panel. No really, I did that on purpose. Good or bad idea??
I mounted the stenciled panel on a pale green base card. Then I cut round the birds and mounted on foam pads in front of the stenciled panels. These two little cuties took less that 30 minutes. I do kinda like the soft look the bumping gives. Trying to perfect the imperfect look ROFL.
Thanks for dropping by. Hugz
