Thank You

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Well the first Wednesday  of the new year and a busy day ahead.

First day back into the craft room for 2019 and I have a couple of videos to prep for and some admin to do also.

This thank you card is for each and everyone of you my followers and subscribers for visiting my blog and You Tube channel over the festive period.

A quick card using Clarity Stamps, Artistry Inks and Perga colour pens.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square deckle edge card base.
2. Matted and layered blue pearlescent card.
3. To create the topper I first masked the moon before distressing with Artistry inks midnight blue giving an ombre effect.  I used hay stack for the moon.
4. I stamped the blue tit and blossom, coloured the blossom with Perga colour. I restamped the bird and coloured with my colour pencils, cut out and decoupaged over the bird on base card to give dimension.
5. To finish off I stamped the sentiment "thank you"

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
