The Great Outdoors and Toucans!

Hello bloggers,

This is my last catch up blog!  These two cards were made as samples for the Clarity TV show last month.

 The first one is 'The Great Outdoors'  I enjoyed making this one even though it did involve cutting out, which is not my most favourite activity!
I stamped and embossed the large scene in place, the stamped and embossed it on three other pieces of card and cut out the mountains so that I could decoupage them over the main stamped image.  I coloured the clouds and water with promarkers and added some glitter.  The other images are then stamped in place and I coloured the words.
The background is a piece of watercolour card which I used to mop up some distress inks spritzed on a glass mat.

I had to look up Toucans on the internet to see how to colour them - what an amazing range of colours they come in!!  I stamped and embossed the toucans, then coloured with promarkers. I masked the centre panel to do the strips down the edge using the lovely cheese plant leaf stamps.
I also picked up some colour off my mat to stamp the images above and below the birds.

Phew, I think I've caught up now, so my more recent cards will be blogged over the next few weeks.

Thank you for visiting
