sing a song

Hello there and welcome to another crafty creation. I’ve used one of Clarity’s ‘poetry frame’ stamps today (without the poem), inspired by the challenges at The Paper Players and TGIF

The first step was to stamp the leafy frame from the ‘what is this life’ set onto white card using ‘shadow grey’ Archival ink. I blended ‘broken china’ ink across the clouds mask to create a sky in the centre of the frame.

I coloured the frame with SU’s ‘smoky slate’ alcohol markers, then filled in the leaves using ‘gorgeous grape’ Write marker and a blender pen. Once finished, I fussy cut the whole piece.

I stamped the Maya Angeloue quote into the centre with the ‘shadow grey’ ink. I have to confess I did not get it completely straight – it’s an old Clarity stamp (don’t think it’s available any more) and still mounted on one of their handles. I added a couple of birds from the ‘happy birday’ set, with a small flock up in the sky. I was going to mount it onto a piece of background paper, but in the end decided I quite liked it against the white backing of a 5×7 card blank.

Thanks for dropping in. We’ve had lovely blue skies here today – looks like spring is not too far away.
