Bird'day card

Where has January gone?! It's already time to give you some more inspiration for the Stamplorations Theme & Sketch challenge.

This month the theme & sketch are:
This time I went for the Theme only to make this birthday card.

I used an oval Mixed Media plate to create the hills with ink, but with hindsight it would have been easier to use a stencil. The hills are of course my "curves" and I created masks with my now indispensable Stitched Snow Hills die set (yes again!).

I stamped the bird from the Trendy Birds 2 set and applied a bit of colour to the  branch, breast and beak.

The smaller birds in the sky have been created with the Some Birds - ARTplorations Stencil and inks.

Do check out what my teamies made for your pleasure and inspiration on the Stamplorations blog and then bust out the stash and make something for our challenge. You can follow only the sketch or the theme, both if you like, and you could be in with a chance to win prizes...

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the SSS Monday Challenge  challenge.

  3. Wow! This card is really lovely. I am so impressed with the depth of layering you were able to create with your masking technique. It is really striking and I especially love the bird in the foreground paired with the flock of birds flying behind it. You're done an impressive job here and I truly feel inspired!
