Washi Tape Goose

Yaaaaaaayy!! I must start today's post with some "Thank You's" to DT's who have chosen my card as their Top 3. ( Sorry for blowing my own trumpet, but I'm over the moon!)

First, Make My Monday, for Top 3 with my Silhouette card...........Thank You DT

Second, CAS Colours and Sketches, for Top 3 with my Pastel Flourishes card...........Thank You DT

and thirdly, Color Throwdown, for choosing me as their Featured Stamper.........Thank You DT   

Now down to business! My card today is for three challenges

gave us this sketch,

second, CAS-ual Fridays with these colours,

and third, Less is More, who want us to use


Here is my card

First, I coloured some masking tape with green SU WM, and stamped feathers on it with Archival ink, and once dry, I coloured the large feather with blue.
This was used to frame the stamped goose, who was coloured with orange using my Aqua Painter. He was then placed on 3D pads and laid on a diamond of green card, and onto a white base. Three corners were stamped with the wading birds in orange, and the sentiment was placed in the fourth.

Supplies :
Card = Whisper White, Green and base FMS
Stamps = Wetlands, Fine Feathers, and Simply Sketched
Inks = Black Archival, Pistachio Pudding, Peach Parfait, and Coastal Cabana
Tools = Aqua Painter, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = Masking Tape and 3D Pads

Before I leave you today, here are the birthday and get well cards, Nathan and Sophie made for my Mum ( Nana to them). I helped with the heat embossing, and cutting the Swallowtail out, but the colours and positions of flowers etc., were all done by the kids themselves. 

Don't you think they have the artistic flare?

Mum comes out of hospital tonight, so I'm nearly back to normal, except I'm having my hospital treatment tomorrow again!! ( these four weeks soon come around! ) , so I'll be back very soon.
