Earth Music

Earth Music (3)

Morning all! The Easter Break is over so it’s back to the routine of school runs and things today.

So with a quick cuppa in hand before the hustle and bustle starts I thought I would pop on and share another make with the new stamps Crafters Companion are bringing to Hochanda on Thursday.

If you didn’t see yesterday’s post they are designed by Stacey Barrass and there are two floral sets ‘Perfect Peony’ and ‘Beautiful Bloom’, two sets with birds ‘Little Birdie’ and ‘Find Your Wings’ and two sentiments sets ‘In Full Bloom’ and ‘Better Together’

This is one of the cards I have made with the stamp set ‘Find Your Wings’

I love those feathery wings! 

I have watercoloured this one using Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils. I’ve just use the Essentials Set of AquaBlend pencils and although it was a challenge I love the earthy/natural look it has given to the image.

Originally I had the image against a white background but it looked a little too stark, so I created some light stripes with pencils and dragged the colour with a Clear Sparkle Pen.

And the background bird for the sentiment was stamped in pale grey ink and the coloured pulled in with a waterbrush.
