It's time for another share of one of my GDT cards over at the Chocolate Baroque blog. I also have a a couple of shares of Tattered Lace cards that will be coming up over the nest few days at the live C&C programmes from the Crafting Live Belfast show.
It's a Spring inspired creation using Pan Pastels, toadstools from the Autumn Poppy stamp set and one of the rabbit images and pussy willow from the Glorious Spring stamp set.
I started with the reverse side of a piece of centura pearl, masked a sun and created the background with Pan Pastels. Next I stamped the images, rubbed out the Pan Pastels from the toadstools and coloured them in with Spectrum pencils. The sunrays were then sponged in with Distress Inks and some extra shading added beneath rabbit and toadstools to ground them.
These gorgeous birds are part of a new Charisma release, as with all the Charisma range there is a CD with the images in several colurways along with matching backing papers and dies to cut out the image, a close look at the birds beaks shows just how clever and precise the artwork and dies are.
For this one I created a simple background with distress inks.
Have a good Wednesday all and many thanks for popping in today.
