Another card made using one of my older stamp sets that's not seen the light of day for some time.
I've stamped the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Crazy Bird" in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink. I already had a mask for it, so popped that over the stamped image so I could cover it while using the stencils.
I used the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Chevron Layering Stencil" with Ranger "Prickly Pear" Archival Ink.
Over the top of that, I then used the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous "Dot Fade Layering Stencil" with "Lost Shadow" Distress Ink.
I then went around the edge of the card working inwards towards teh stamped image with Ranger "Garden Patina" Archival Ink.
I mounted the topper on to blue card and then on to a kraft card blank.
I stamped the sentiment, also part of the "Crazy Bird" stamp set in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.
I coloured the bird using three Derwent Inktense Pencils, applied with a paint brush. I used "Golden Sun", "Cadmium Orange" and "Malibu" for the eyes. I added touches of white gel pen too.
I grounded the bird using "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide Ink and a 2B pencil. I added some dots of yellow and orange Posca Pens to replicate flowers.
Finally, I added some dots of Ranger "Glossy Accents" to the eyes of the bird and set aside to dry.
