12 Days of............Day 6

This is my entry for week six of the '12 Days of' Challenge being run over on UK Stampers Forum. This one depicts 6 Geese a-laying ! Not sure whether these little birds qualify as Geese but they are there anyway.

The base card is a piece of 4 x 4 inch white cardstock.

The background of checkered printed paper was applied and trimmed and was then stamped at the top with scruffy numbers & letters mini text stamp from PaperArtsy using lavender Impress dye ink. The birdies are from a set of clear stamps by Basic Grey and I have stamped the birds in Versamark onto mid green printed paper and heat embossed with seafoam white embossing powder. I did two strips of three birds and trimmed as shown and applied with glue stick, top and bottom of the 4 x 4 plate. A little bird footprint stamp (Basic Grey) was stamped in black archival ink onto these once in place.

Next I used an egg stamp (PaperArtsy) and stamped this 6 times on pale blue card with Versamark and heat embossed with blue glass embossing powder. Once cool I trimmed out the eggs and coloured with a water brush and Caran D'ache soluble wax crayons in lime green and mid blue. They were layered onto a large foam pad in the form of a flower and applied as shown.

The number 6 was made from chipboard and I coloured this brown and distressed it with sandpaper before swiping with a maroon chalk ink pad and applying with Glossy Accents as shown.

The edges of the plate were also coloured with the same chalk ink to finish.
