A Friday Oldie
Today I'm showing a card I made quite a few years ago now which unfortunately wasn't photographed very well.
I used an old wood mounted set which consisted of the two birds, a nest and an egg, which I used to stamp for the background.
I tore a piece of watercolour card from the block, cut off a strip and stamped the two birds in black then added a little watercolour pink to colour them.
For the strip on the left I used the "caught in crystal" technique which I've not used for a long time.
Inks were put onto some acetate then spritzed with water. Then I put glossy accents on top and sprinkled on a little glitter. To finish I covered it all with tissue paper that had been screwed up then opened out and left it for a few hours to dry.
I added the dragonfly brad after colouring his body with a black permanent marker.
I'm going to link up on Erika's blog where she asks us to share an old card each Friday.
Have a lovely weekend.
