Watch the Birdie!!

My heating engineer has only just left ( 5.22pm ), thank goodness I didn't have anywhere important to be today!!

While waiting for him I had chance to do another card.

 It's for the Clean and Simple challenge where they have this sketch

and CAS-ual Fridays where they want to see feathered friends

 This is what I made


 I still had my blue and green inks and sponges on my desk so I sponged a label and layered it on a dark green one. I then stamped and coloured the dovecote on some white card, cut it out and stuck it on the label. I then stamped the white doves in grey ink, cut them out and added them to the picture, with the flying dove on 3D pads overhanging the scene. The sentiment was added, and the whole thing was added to some green card that had been embossed. Simples!!!

Here is a closer view of the white doves. I have softened them with an Aqua painter and some grey ink. I tried stamping them in black at first, but they looked too severe so I used the grey.

Recipe :
Card = Garden Green, Green Galore, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, and cream card base FMS
Stamps = Flower Soft and SU Basic Phrases
Inks = Pool Party, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Sahara Sand, and Basic Black
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Budding Vine embossing folder, and Aqua Painter
Extras = 3D pads

That's it for today, Thanks for looking and I hope to be back tomorrow?
