Time is Precious

It is when your on a deadline, especially trying to finish cards for a TV show. I have no rush deadline at the moment but who knows when the next phonecall will be. I find time is also precious now I have a Granddaughter, she is growing so fast, 3 months already.
Today's card uses the storks and the Wafer. The Wafer is  a stencil and a mask, both  positive and the negative parts. I used both for this, to mask off for the sun and clouds and then the stencil for the hills. The Distress inks I used were Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain for the bullrushes.
The storks I embossed in True White embossing powder and then coloured their beaks with Copics.
The other foliage came from the Chrystanthamum  corner and the bluebirds die.
Back to sample making, playing with Jayne Nestorenko's lovely stamps today. Cards will be on show later in the year.
Happy Crafting

  1. Hi Karen
    I love the built up background and the sky on this card and then everything else sits so nicely along side it, really lovely
