Today, a new challenge is starting over at Moving Along With The Times, this fortnight, with the theme of “Things Beginning With B” – which offers so much variety… Birds, butterflies, buttons, bunnies, birthdays, boys, bears…. You name it, anything beginning with B and it is qualifies! I created this card for my Grandma and Grandpa, who celebrated their 53rd Wedding Anniversary yesterday, and thought that with the birds, it fitted perfectly with the theme.
If you would like to join in with the Moving Along With The Times challenge, make sure to enter your creation before Wednesday 23rd August, 6PM BST.
I began by die cutting a heart from Kraft card, and used Mama Elephant Moonlight ink – a very light grey, almost white, pigment ink. It is because it is a pigment ink that it shines so brightly as it sits on top of, rather than sinking into, the paper. I used the floral images from Inspired By Stamping’s “Big Thanks” to create the wreath and frame the birds.
I used two of the little birds from W Plus 9’s Happy Mail stamp set and used a white and variety of grey pencils to colour them in. I added a tiny top hat from a Mama Elepant stamp set – because it looked so cute and made me giggle! 😉 I love using strong white colours on Kraft card, as it always looks so bold and bright.
To personalise the card, I die cut a 5 and 3 using the Memory Box Typewriter Numbers and wrote on the sentiment with a brush pen. I then die cut a square of vellum and patterned paper and adhered the layers with foam.
Thanks for popping by my little nook on the Internet 🙂
