Just for You Kookaburra Card

Hello Everyone,

Are you ready for the weekend?  I am not.  I have a class tomorrow morning that I'm still preparing the cardstock and kits for and I'm also wanting to get some baking done.  I fear it will be another late night for me.  That usually happens before a class.

Today I'm sharing a commissioned card that I was asked to make for an older gentleman that likes birds of the feathered variety.  I decided to use the Kookaburra image from A Happy Thing sale-a-bration stamp set.  I kept the colouring to a minimum with this card and used a cool technique on the background.  Come and have a look.




The cardstock used is Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand and Whisper White.  I mentioned a cool technique on the background.  That's actually the Sahara Sand layer where I inked inside the Woodgrain embossing folder with the Soft Sky inkpad before placing the card inside and running it through the Bigshot.  See how the raised areas of the woodgrain are the Sand colour and down in the groves its looks coloured a little darker because of the ink.   I love that technique.  The image has been cut and mat with the Deco Label framelits.  Here's the full pic of the card below.



The colouring was done with my blendability markers and the greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set and is cut and mat with the Bitty Banners framelits.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a fantastic Friday and a great weekend.

  1. Carolyn, this is absolutely beautiful! I'll admit I'm yet to use this stamp set, but you've inspired me to give it a go. Thank you! xxx
