First I'd like to give a warm welcome to my new follower Lucy. She makes such pretty cards so I hope you will visit her blog.
My card today was great fun to make. I used two metal stencils by Stampendous which I bought recently.
I drew round the bird with a fine liner pen then used the second stencil, which I moved around the bird and put the flowers where I wanted them.
The two larger flowers are on the bird stencil. I coloured in using my Inktense watercolour pencils but didn't use a water colour brush to blend colours as I wanted a naive look to my card.
I cut out the bird and flowers and stuck them to the card with Pinflair glue gel. The mauve background paper is a recycled envelope The strip at the bottom was cut from a piece I found in a box of mixed papers because the colours were such a good colour match. I don't know which spritzers were used on the the paper as it was done so long ago.
I'm popping my card over to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 226
