Garden Birds Cards

Darkroom Door - Monday, June 04, 2018
Hi, it's Godelieve Tijskens here today to share more cards using the Garden Birds stamp sets! 

I made a square card, size is 15 cm x 15 cm. I started with a thin coat of gesso, let it dry. The bird was stamped with black Archival ink. I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks to watercolor the bird, and to add a bit of color to the background. 

I masked the bird, and added more color to the background, using the large Circles stencil to sponge with Archival inks. I also stamped the new Swirls texture stamp with these Archival inks. The poppy stems and sentiment were stamped in black. I removed the mask, added shadow below the bird and stems using a brown Scribble Stick. I distressed the edges of the panel with a paper distresser and adhered the piece to a white folded card.

Supplies I used:
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Garden Birds, Poppies, Simple Sayings Vol 2
Darkroom Door Texture Stamp: Swirls
Darkroom Door Large Stencil: Circles
Archival Inkpads: Jet Black, Leaf Green, Aquamarine
Tonic Paper Distresser 

This next project is a quick and easy card. I chose a gel print from my stash. To create this print I had used the Tribal Background Stamp and the large Circles stencil.
I stamped the birds onto the gel print using black Archival Ink, and once again onto white cardstock to cut out. I glued the white birds onto the gel print.

To stamp the sentiment I used the Alphabet Medley set, mixing the large and small letters.
I also stamped the Swirls texture stamp with black Archival ink, holding the stamp in my hand without a stamping block. So I was able to use small parts of the stamp.
A black Micron pen and a white gel pen were used to draw a frame.

Supplies I used:
Darkroom Door Stamp Sets: Garden Birds, Alphabet Medley
Darkroom Door Texture Stamp: Swirls
Darkroom Door Background Stamp: Tribal
Darkroom Door Large Stencil: Circles
Archival Inkpad: Jet Black
Black Micron Pen
White Signo Gel Pen
