Trish asked me to be a “guest designer” for Friday’s QFTD challenge. Our new Queen is Val, aka: Greywolf. Val you have a wonderful gallery of pretty cards. It was a pleasure to pick one and take on the challenge. Here is what I did….
First off I had to choose a card. I went with this one mainly because I love birdhouses, especially ones with birdies in them. hehe
I kept the same theme, birdhouse and bird, just colored things up a bit adding a hill and some flowers. Plus my bird seems to be “tweeting”. hehe
My bg was made on a gelli plate using cardboard with the paper ripped off as my stencil. My bird house and flowers were hand drawn and colored with the gelli plate as well then cut out and popped up. Made a mask of the birdhouse and sponged around it to add some depth before the popping up part.
Masked and sponged on acrylic paint for the green hill. The tweeting bird was hand drawn and colored with sharpies.
Then sentiment was done on the computer using a font I made with an App on my IPAD. Not too shabby.
Put my panel on a white card adding all the tiny circles. Done.
Val I enjoyed browsing your gallery. Hope you have a wonderful fun time being our new Queen. Thanks Trish for letting me be a guest designer. Have a great day all!.....TFL :0)

What a bright cheerful down right Springy looking card! The colors are so vivid and a bird tweeting is all I know about tweeting! I still have no clue as to all the steps and things you use and do, but hey you do and it WORKS everytime! :)
