Soar Blog Hop with Scrap'n Stamp

 

 Hello all! Welcome to our February blog hop where we are celebrating "Birds" which just so happens to be one of my favourite topics, Birds and more precisely my birds, Sunny, a Yellow Canary and Kiwi, a Lady Gouldian Finch.

The stamp set that I picked to use today is by Penny Black and called Feathering. I made some changes to the stamp as I wanted to make a winter scene. I searched for cards and found a few with winter scenes which gave me some ideas. 

Before I get ahead of myself, let me give you the details for the hop today. We have a $50.00 gift card for the winner chosen from those who leave comments on the blogs participating today. Please show them some love. Remember, the more comments the more chances you have to win.

We also have a sale going on:

You can find it here.

 

The stamp set that I picked to use today is by Penny Black and called Feathering. I made some changes to the stamp as I wanted to make a winter scene. I searched for cards and found a few with winter scenes which gave me some ideas.

So I removed the berries etc. from each of the birds mouth when stamping the image. To do this I used a Tombow marker to fill in the area that I wanted to show, then stamped the remainder of the stamp with VersaFine Clair ink in Pinecone.

To watercolour today I used Roman Szmal watercolours, which are beautifully vibrant. I bought them from Jackson's Art in the UK.

I first painted the birds, and let them dry. I then did the background up to the snow line and allowed that to dry. For the snow I used Acrylic Paint in White and patted it with my knife to give some texture. I then went over the area with more white paint, then moved on to paint the tree branch. 

When all was complete and dry I added white splatters to the finished card. I then made a black card base 5.5 inches wide by 4.25 inches high. For my watercolouring I used Arches cold press watercolour paper. I trimmed it to fit the card base and attached it using Art Glitter glue.

My card base is Gina K Design cardstock in Black Onyx.

The sentiment I used is from a Woodware stamp as I liked the simple "Winter Wishes". In my mini Misti I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.

I enjoyed making this card, and I hope you have enjoyed it as well. Up next on the hop is Deepa

  4. I LOVE birds, too. I've been watching bird videos lately--talking birds. I LOVE them so much. I've never heard of a Goulding Finch, only Gold Finch. I will have to look it up. ANYWAY, your watercolored birds are just wonderful. I like how you added the little bits of watered down paint to the chest. Nice touch.
