Design Team make for "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog" #406 - Birds
It's time for a new challenge prompt on the "My Time To Craft Challenge Blog". The theme for #406 is "Birds". If you get the chance, please do pop over to the blog and take a look at some of the fab makes by my Design Team colleagues
Here's the card i've created: a snowscape with a crow on the fence post.
For the sky, I masked off a circle and filled it with three shades of Distress Oxide Inks, using the shades of Antique Linen, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.
I then covered the moon shape with a mask and coloured the surrounding sky, using the following Distress Oxide inks: Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Chipped Sapphire.
For the fence post, I used a stamp by Lavinia Stamp that actually has a pheasant sitting on the top of the fence post, so I stamped the fence post using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink on an off-cut of card, then cut the shape of the fence out.
I created layers of the snow landscape, cutting hills and adhering onto the card. I gave the snow a pink/orange blush to create a slight reflection of the sky on the white snow.
I used one of the crows from the Lavinia Stamps "Crows Set" stamping it over the moon and snowscape. I then adhered the fencepost below the claws of the crow.
The birds in the sky, is a stamp also by Lavinia Stamps called "Birds"
The "Winter Wishes" sentiment is part of a Papertrey Ink set called "Winter Hills", again stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.
