I had fun making a masculine card this afternoon,
and using some NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff).
I have had these STAMPlorations sets for more than a day or two, and decided that it was time to ink them up.
This bird from the Small Birds set has always put me in mind of a Kookaburra, and as this card is heading to Australia, I wanted to use it. I did a (strategic) watercolour wash and stamped and embossed over it, then coloured the beak and branch with watercolour pens.
We have experienced the noise a Kookaburra can make (at 3:00a.m., no less), so I felt this sentiment from the Noteworthy set was appropriate....
The first layer was made by creasing a piece of cream paper, smooching a pad of Broken Glass DI direct to it, scrumpled it again, then smooched Tea Dye DI over it.
I layered a die cut over that before adhering the image and sentiment - the edge of the image panel was distressed and sponged with Tea Dye DI, the sentiment was only sponged.
