Camera & Little Bird


Birdie Brown has a monthly challenge and is very generous with her freebies. This month we get to work with Camera & Little Bird and we have 2 matching sentiments.

I chose a sketch from Can You Digi It which I thought was perfect as it reminded me of an old photograph. I covered the card blank in spotty paper from Papermania and cut a photograph shape from some black card.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers keeping the camera in quite masculine colours. My hubby is a Canon man so the red ring was a nod to him. I created decoupage layers for the flower, the birdie and the ring on the camera. However somehow between colouring it and cutting it out downstairs and then making it to my craft room the ring totally disappeared, goodness only know where it went to. Believe me I looked everywhere! I am hoping It will come home and I can then stick it on, here’s hoping….. J

To finish off I used one of the sentiments, trimmed it into a banner shape as mounted on 3d foam. I distressed the edges of the card and the banner with a small inkpad and that declared it done (minus one decoupage layer…..)

Thanks Torico for running these challenges and for the gorgeous freebies you give us J
