Last week I was having a little play with one of our older sets of stamps and some masking techniques. I often use torn paper for my masks, but I was inspired by the work of Heather Telford whose masking is very crisp and precise, so I came up with this using masks cut with scissors and a punched circle for the sun.
When Adrian saw it, he thought it was amazing and I thought, aha, I can do a version of this for his birthday card! His favourite colour is green, so this is what I came up with for him.
I used our new clear stamp set ‘Best Relative Ever’ for the sentiment which is stamped over a scrap of spritzed card (left over from my previous play session).
I don’t need to explain how this is done as Heather actually has a great photo tutorial on her blog today showing how she does her sponged layers – well worth a look if you haven’t done this before.
Imagine this done in halloween colours – that blackbird could easily be a raven …
