In my cardmaking group after the eclipse they had a challenge to use a sun on a card, and I just so happened to have made this card for one of the ladies in my stamping group who gifted me this bird stamp and sun stencil, I wanted to send her a thank you.
I made the background using my inks, the clouds were done using my homemade cloud stencil and I stamped the bird twice, once on the background and then onto another white cardstock so that I could color him in but not have to mess with cutting out his fluff on top of his head or his legs, just the body, made it a lot easier :) Added the die cut tree, bird and leaves and it was finished.
Joggles -- Sunshine stencil and Loretta stamp, colored w/.markers
Distress inks for background - Scattered straw, carved pumpkin, tumbled glass and mermaid lagoon
Memory Box -- Bare Sapling and bird die
Dee's Distinctively - Tree Toppers die
Summer is coming to a quick close, soon it will be time to be making all the fun fall cards :)
Hope you are having a perfect start of this new week, my thoughts and prayers go out to all of those effected by this terrible hurricane.
