Hello, Hi, Hey

Hello, hi, hey, how's it going? If you're in lockdown too - I feel for you. If not - good on you, stay safe.

Meanwhile, it's time for another challenge over at Just Add Ink and it's one more I couldn't resist. 

So after my allowed one visit per day to the shops, I sat me down to make a card:

(not a terribly great photo, sorry - weather not conducive today)

I coloured the birds to resemble crimson rosellas, a type of native parrot who visit my backyard quite regularly. 

This card had a few different parts to it - cutting the frames (they're doubled up for extra depth), sponging the clouds (so easy with a stencil and oxide ink), colouring the birds and branches (Copic markers) and then embossing the greetings. I listen to my favourite music playlist while I work - and, admittedly, usually sing along too. Am I alone in that? Come on, admit it! Yeah, I didn't think so 😉.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Some Birdie Loves You (Clearly Besotted)
  • card - basic white, basic black
  • other - Big Shot, Copic markers, mini cloud stencil (MFT),  decor frames die (Tim Holtz/Sizzix), blending brush, white embossing powder, heat tool, Dimensionals, clear sequins, mini glue dots, tumbled glass distress oxide ink

Hope you're enjoying some creative time too. Thanks for calling in.

Thank goodness for cardmaking in lockdown, Kerry. I love how you've cleverly incorporated the frames, & the birds are the perfect pop of colour & interest. Glad you played along with us at JAI.
