I've had no time or inclination for card making this past week as we've been getting work done in the house - the builders have all been really great but don't you just hate having them in the house. I never quite know what to do with myself! I've a wee bit of painting to finish off, but then I'll also have to paint the hall/stairs to cover up some plaster work, and then once I've done that, all the woodwork and the doors will need done too. Aarrgghhh!
This first card uses a scrap of this birdie DP I've been hoarding for a while. I've used my seagull from Jane's Doodles and paired it with an MFT sentiment and MFT porthole die. I popped my gull on foam pads and added some sparkle to his jumper and clear gloss to his beak etc. Sentiment stamped on dark blue card.
I don't think I've ever used white embossing on an image before, usually just for sentiments. I just puddled in my watercolours and then fussy cut the flowers.
I had a good clear out of all my bits and bobs of scrap paper today, but this little blue scrap of DP turned out to be the perfect size for what I needed!
My flowers are an oldie set from Simon Says Stamp.
