Today's challenge at The Paper Players is to feature a bird on our card. What a great challenge that Joanne has come up with!
For my card, I went with the WPlus9 set Guiding Light and chose the heron image and the sympathy sentiment to come up with this:
I started with a white card base and then another white layer 1/4" smaller. On that panel I stamped the heron and the sentiment in Archival Black ink.
The blue and black strip came from some sheets of card I've had for well over 10 years and I can't remember how I made them! I know I used the Credit Card Technique and this particular piece started out as black cardstock. I think I used Lumiere Paint as the blue is beautifully shimmery. I'm guessing I put a blob of paint on the black card and used a credit card to spread it really thin so that in some places the black cardstock shone through. I might try and find my Lumiere paints and see if I can re-create this, so that I know how I made it :) Oh the trials of getting old and forgetting things!
So that's my card for today. Check out all the birdy cards the rest of the design team have come up with. They're a feast for the eyes :)
