This is another commissioned card, and again a name was requested. This time the recipient is in their early 20's, and I must admit I was scratching my head as to what to create.
Having decided to feature the NBUS die In Flight by Spellbinders I then made the background using a hand cut template, (stencil) and Memento Summer Sky and Danube Blue inks to sponge the clouds with.
I cut and embossed the bird in a heavy silver card,
The detail in the bird's plumage is fabulous
The name was also die cut from the same card - I used washi tape to line the letters up on,
The tape removes easily and the result looks good.
The sentiment was silver embossed to maintain the colour scheme.
After the main panel was assembled, I then mounted it over a matching stitched rectangle of the silver card, and then onto the the blue base.
The inside was finished with a strip of the sponged card.
