Bird Collage Card by Gail
Hello Rubber Dance friends. Gail here today. I'm looking forward to spring and decided to make a card with birds. Rubber Dance have quite a lot of bird themed stamps so I decided to try and collage a few together. The stamping and masking was quite a fun and relaxing exercise. Here's my finished card.
I got a bit lost in the process so I didn't take lots of pictures, but I'll try and explain my order of stamping. I started by stamping one of the Sketchy Birds with black archival ink . I gave him a watercolour wash with Picked Raspberry distress oxide and masked it. Then, using Sky Blue archival ink I stamped and masked Large Postoid, Vintage Aviary, Feathered Friends and the pebbles from Mixed Media Marks #3, in that order. Then I unmasked everything except the pebbles and the pink bird and stamped the silhouette bird from Nesting.
To finish I gave the whole panel a pink watercolour wash, edged with red ink and mounted on a red slimline card base.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you like my card. If you are making anything using Rubber Dance stamps add them to the album in the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge for a chance to win a voucher to the shop. Have fun!! See you there!!!
