things with wings ....


 Hello again. Today's offerings are 2 cards i made last Easter with the small blue tits and cherry blossom stamps from Claritystamp.
I thought of them after reading Barbara's blog earlier in the week.


I started by stamping cherry blossom branches on the top. Then i stamped feeder and the tits and masked them off. i then masked off a strip and stamped another cherry blossom branch below. I stamped in potting soil archival ink. Before removing mask i added some shadow with distress inks and a make up sponge.
The colouring was all done with distress markers and a damp brush.
I also inked some very faint clouds in background.


The sentiment is part word chains and part from a set of sentiments all from Claritystamp.
I added a squiggly line to add more definition. I drew a chain on the feeder so it hangs from branch. I matted on brown card and added some ribbon and voila'.


The second card utilizes same stamps but is in landscape. The area for sentiment is done by using a part of a tag stencil by Claritystamp and then I added eyelets where it had holes. I inked around all edges and matted and layered on matching card.


I also made a birthday card with the same stamps but i couldn't find the pictures.

I do hope you like my offerings, Theresa xx
