52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

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.
