I liked the 'Northern Lights' effect of the brayered piece and thought it made a great backdrop for my blackbird. The flowers/foliage image is from one of the stamps in my Apothecary Art set; using a marker to colour it, I stamped once on the card base and then again, upside down on the panel using a stamp-a-majig to line everything up.
The bird has been coloured with watercolour pencils (using my trusty bird book as a reference to check what he'd REALLY look like!) Just look at his beady eye!
The sentiment was stamped onto the card base to get the descenders, then again right on the edge of the brayered panel. When I attached the panel to the card front I carefully lined them up - although it doesn't look as if I did from this photo!

Yesterday I was talking to my daughter about the Disney film WALL-E. We'd watched it recently while she was out at work. "You really must see it - it's a wonderful film," I told her. "Isn't it really depressing?" she asked. "Not at all!" I said. "It's uplifting!" She looked at me and laughed. "Whenever you say something's uplifting, I know it'll break my heart!" But you have to go through the pain to appreciate the happy ending - don't you?!
I'll have a couple of cards to show you tomorrow - they're using the same colour scheme but are for very different occasions. Hope to see you then,
