This was another of my experiments. I laid a layer of water on part of the card and some pale blue H2O paint over that. I left it to dry and once it was dry I stamped the bird in place. My first instinct was to colour the image pink but then I remembered I need and my mum needs more male birthday cards so I grabbed a really pale blue H2O paint for his body and a green-blue for his eyes once he was dry I fussy cut his body out and popped him onto my card. He looked like he was floating in the air so I darkened the area beneath his feet to create a shadow, I stamped the sentiment straight onto the card and edged the card with blue DIP: simples lol!
I have candy that is open world wide to new and old Followers. I would love it if my current Followers were to add their name too, for the post with the link you need to go here.
