Clearly Besotted "Some Birdie Loves You" | You're so Tweet
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today I wanted to share a card that I had created before Valentine's Day but it never made it up on time. I had considered not posing this, but then I figured it could also be used as a thank you card or a card just to let someone know you care.
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock and coloured them with Copic markers. I masked off the images and sponged Distress Ink to create a sunset background. I picked the sunset colours to compliment the blue of the bird. I was going for the black mask love bird look, and while it isn't perfect, I think it came pretty close.
I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Note Card die to cut down my panel and adhered it to a piece of blue cardstock. It was afterwards that I decided the blue was too plain, so I used Fish Tank ink to stamp the music notes as a soft tone on tone background. The colour dried back more than I had intended, but I was too far along to start again, you know how it is.
I used my clear gelly roll glitter pen over the lines of the cage to give them a shiny metallic look. To add a touch more detail, I used a black gel pen over the eyes and a white gel pen to give it some highlight.
I then mounted the whole lot to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
