Little Bird

Good morning everyone, I hope you're not too hot!  I am having trouble sleeping in the heat and I'm working nights tonight so I've got to develop a strategy for today to work out when to go back to bed! 
Here's another card I made recently:
Colours used are Marina Mist and Perfect Plum, which go so well together.  I've used the spotty dsp and the script side.  The brown is Early Espresso.
Here's a close up of the image
This stamp was free with a magazine.  I've stamped it onto watercolour paper and coloured it with Marina Mist and Perfect Plum pens, washed over with a little bit of water.  It's created a lovely effect.
A little white satin ribbon and a tag complete the card.  Great fun to make.
I'm so excited about the Olympics, as you probably know, I'm horse mad and can't wait to watch all the horsey stuff, but I think I'll be at work for a lot of it.
Have a great weekend everyone, I'm off to make my granddaughter's birthday card.

  4. This is beautiful Jane! I love the colours and the way you used both sides of the DSP. Hope you got to see that amazing opening ceremony and maybe you'll be able to tape the horsey stuff! Can't wait to see your granddaughter's card! Vicky x

  6. Lovely cards, as ever. I really like the color combinations.

    Watching the horse events from London here in New Jersey,USA, as well. They are not broadcasting everything, but I watched some of the event dressage on the Internet live feed. However, it looks as if they will be broadcasting a large portion of the cross country tomorrow.

    That course is awesome! Really technically hard, so the really good riders are going to be separated from the "rest of the pack." Great Britain is putting on some pretty wonderful Olympics. You should be proud!
