Its amazing how some cards can take forever to make because I keep changing my mind or trying out different ideas that I'm not happy with, whereas this card took no time at all. I think I'd got the idea in my head and it all came together to make something I was happy with.
So for father's day I made this card using all Clarity Stamps. The Kingfisher was stamped onto some white card and coloured with a mixture of distress markers ad promarkers. I made a mask for the bird and stamped the end of the branch again to extend it behind. For the background I used a brayer and Momento Teal Zeal ink and a screwed up piece of paper to create a water texture. For the wording I used the Clarity letter stamps and matted both the words and Kingfisher onto some complimentary coloured card. The white background has been created by embossing a piece of Centura Pearl card with the clarity swirl mask, my most recent purchase at the Doncaster Stamp Magic show.
