Funky Fossil "Birdsong" card


I've been using stamps and stencil from Funky Fossil Designs to create this card.

I used a stamp from the Funky Fossil Designs "Bird Song" stamp set.  I stamped it in the bottom left corner of the card, using Versafine Clair "Medieval Blue" ink, then stamped it again on a post it note, cut it out and popped it over the stamped image on the card blank to create a mask. While the ink was out, I stamped the sentiment "soar" whick is from the same stamp set.

I positioned the Funky Fossil "Scribbles Stencil" over the card and very lightly, using a Funky Fossil Design Stencil Brush to apply three shades of Archival Ink.  I used Pink Peony, Garden Patina and Shadow Grey. I lifted the stencil then splattered "Slate Grey" coloured Posca Pen to give a bit more interest.

Once the splatters were dry, I gave them a burst from my heat gun, I removed the mask and started to colour in the bird image.  I used four shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Salvaged Patina, Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans colours.

  2. I love this beautiful bird and the softly stencilled background stencilling is really pretty Sam...to me it also has the look of flowers especially with the shaped edge to it. x
