Hello, today sees the start of the first challenge of at the year over at Crafty Cardmakers. But first I would like to welcome our new DT members, Jac, June, Margaret, Peggy and Chanya13, Jac is hosting this challenge and this fortnight's theme is 'New Beginnings'.
For my card I decided to make a card to celebrate the arrival of a New Baby. I started by die cutting a circle into a piece of water colour card and creating a background with some Cerulean BlueCotman watercolour paint.
I then stamped the branches which are from Hobby Art's Bird Song stamp set with 'London Fog' Memento Ink. I then stamped a feather from the 'Feather's' Stamp set, also from Hobby Art in the same Ink.
I used Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to paint the background and added some white gel pen dots and highlights. I also added some drops of Glossy Accents, which I sprinkled with clear Glitter.
I made another background and this time stamped the branches and the chicks in the nest stamp, which is from Hobby Art's 'Spring Has Sprung' stamp set. I also used the Spectrum Noir markers to paint these and also added the highlights and glitter in the same way.
I layered the frame using two thicknesses of foam tape for extra dimension and added a hand written sentiment that I finished off with a few of the blossom stamps from the Bird Song stamp set.
I hope you like my card and please check out my fellow DT's blogs as they have made some gorgeous cards.
Thanks for visiting.
