Aud Sentiments Design Team Card - Thursday 12 April 2012

We had a beautiful array of entries for our Easter challenge.  Make sure you have a look on the Aud Sentiments Blog to see who the winner is - it could be you if you entered!!!  This fortnight we are being challenges to "spring/summer colours and a sentiment of your choice".  
The challenge is being sponsored by Heart Song Designs.
For my cards I have chosen the image called "Bird and Roses".  Both cards have been coloured with Promarkers, just using slightly different colourways on each.  The backing papers, flowers and leaves are from a My Craft Studio Click-Print-Go CD.  Yes it took me quite a while to cut all those flowers out and ink the edges but well worth it.  The cards have been finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment and Papermania Glitterations to the centre of the flowers.
Here is a close-up of picture no 1 where the bird is a darker brown and the sky and grass have been done with a piece of torn paper, make-up sponge and some Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint distress ink pad.
The second card has the bird coloured in lighter colours and then I did spots over the bird with a Promarker blender pen to add some effect.  The sky and the grass on this card has been done in the same way with some torn paper but this time I have used shimmer chalks and the tool that came with them.

I'm not sure which one I like the best but I've now got two more cards for my charity stall next week.
