Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - Midmonth Reminder

Good morning! I found some time to get inky yesterday, so I am able to share another card for this month's "Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday Challenge" here on my blog. This month I selected the theme of 

"Feature a Creature",

 this can be any creature....animal, winged things, mythical creatures etc.






The background was done by simply inking an acrylic block using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, spritzed with water and then stamped on to Bristol Vellum paper. I let this dry then used Versafine Onyx Ink to stamp Song of Joy by Penny Black onto the background. I colored the image using my Zig Clean Color markers and a Detailer brush also by Zig. I used the colors Olive Green, Scarlett Red, Orange and Cobalt Blue for the image. Stardust Stickles glitter was applied to the berries and the star. The sentiment tags were cut out using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Die Set and the little sentiment are from Penny Black's set Holiday Snippets. I used some Gold Sparkle Twine to tie the little tags to the card, pop-up glue dots keep them in place.
The scarlett red is more orange-y than I like my berries to be, I might go over them with another Zig marker to make them a deeper shade of red....

I've included an Amazon product list for those of you interested - remember most items qualify for free shipping on orders  of $25 or more.

(sentiments used are a few years old, and although my main stamp is new to me, it's actually an older stamp as well, I am thinking at least 2 - 3 years old). I went with the bottom row - birds, twine and leaves.

  7. What a fabulous card! I love the way you've inked the background in the Tumbled Glass then built up the layers from there. The stamp itself is gorgeous and your colouring really enhances it. The die cut words finish it off beautifully. Thank you for joining us at Retro Rubber and especially thanks for using my tic-tac-toe as inspiration!
