A Thing of Beauty Is a Joy FOREVER.....

Morning folks!!!

I've done this card for inspiration on the Sheena's Ink-ettes Facebook page (a group page for everything Sheena Douglass) for this months challenge of "birds".

The background is a distress oxide one which was followed by some of Sheena's stencils, some hand doodling and if you look more closely some stencilling with feathers (from my cockatoo - Daisy) - DON'T PANIC, SHE WASN'T HARMED TO PRODUCE THIS CARD!!!!  I simply collect the larger feathers from the bottom of her cage when I clean her, disinfect them and away I go - free feathers!!!!

Lots of Sheena's stamps on here and the leaves at the front are one of her stencils which I have inked and cut around.

I finished off with a couple of Daisy's feathers that I spritzed with ink and attached for a more "bird like" feel.

The Hibiscus flowers have been finished off with a clear overlay sparkle pen which is pretty near impossible to pick up on camera but I've had a go for you 

Mat and layered on deep plum, white and black card stock.

Oh, and say hi to Daisy!!!

  2. A fabulous card Leanne, the flowers and birds are beautifully coloured and really 'pop' against your inky background.
