Morphic Bird!!!

Isn't this stamp just mouthwateringly gorgeous?
It's from a set called Morphic Birds by Inkadinkado.
The image has been stamped in black Versafine and clear embossed onto an Adirondack Stream background on gloss card which has been spritzed with water to create a faux bleach effect.
I then added strips of lightweight Therm'O'Web Heat and Bond and heated with a heat gun. Brushed over it with Pearl Perfect Pearl powder and heated again.
The bird has been painted with bleach to remove the colour and then repainted with Diamond Stickles on a paintbrush.
Added a few gems.........and there you go..........quite simple and a lot quicker to make than it looks. I think it took me longer to tie the bow.......lol!!!

You can see another card made with a Bondaweb technique HERE.

We had a little visitor today.........a baby duck who had got separated from his momma. OMG he was so flippin' cute.
I caught sight of him bumbling around in the back garden and as there was a cat about I got DD to catch it and we put it in the wash basket with a dish of water until we could locate it's missing momma.
No luck finding her so hubby took it to a local farmer who has a fishing pond where the ducks congregate and he is going to try and either find it's momma or a surrogate one.
I sooooo wanted to keep it.
Got to clean the poo out of the wash basket now.......lol!!!

Well I finished the James Herbert book and nearly chucked up me tea. Gawd it was horrible. Back to the Cathy Kelly's tonight methinks.
Don't think I will be going anywhere near my bed tonight as I still have two cards to design and prep for a class tomorrow afternoon. Hubby decided to work until 4pm so I got lumbered with cooking tea just when I could have done without it and as always he put in an order for something 'with gravy' as he knew I was at home all day.

Right......best go and crack on.
Thanks for visiting.

  1. Loved this card (it's so pretty) and loved this post too.

    You've really had me chuckling about your scary book. I used to love horrors but although they don't really scare me I prefer a good psychological thriller these days

    I hope the little duck finds it's mum!

  2. This card is so pretty! I get annoyed when I have to make dinner(tea) when I'd much rather be doing something fun.
