Bird House

Morning my crafting friends, hope today finds you all safe and well, thank you for visiting me today, its much appreciated, I do read all your lovely comments and view your blogs if you have one, please leave a link to your blog if you do have one then I can return the favour.

This was another little mixed media card I did, the base card is using the 'leather' card, this is matted and layered using designer paper and Peacock papers, in-between those I have placed a doily. I have added two corners on top of the Peacock paper.

The top layer is designer paper again that has been embossed with the Lattice mask then inked with Vintage Photo through a Brick work Stencil before being painted over with a thick layer of Crackle Glaze, this does not crackle as much as I would like it too and I do not think it shows up on these images too well either, sorry.

The Bird house stamp was a free gift along with some Art products I ordered from Paper Artsy, I stamped it with Vintage Photo then heat embossed with Copper embossing powder then inked over with Rusty Hinge, cut it out a stuck to the front of the card with foam pads.

I stamped the Bird from Anne Marie Birdcage set on top of the bird house then added two dragonflies from DM Flutterby stamps using Black Archival Ink.

A little card which did not take too long to make, I have left the sentiment off until I decied a use for it lol!

  5. Woo hoo, my friend Jacquie has whipped out her mixed media products again!! This is gorgeous, wowsers! I love the brick background with the subtle pattern mixed in, and your little bird and birdhouse make such a summery scene! Fantastic work, love it!! hugs :)

  7. Awesome. Love all the techniques and layers you added to this fantastic card Jacquie. I can see the crackle, but I know what you mean about it not showing as much as you'd like. I find if I add a second thick coat, that it shows much better. Just my experience. I have recently purchased crackle paste from Finnabair and it works really well, but isn't shiny like the crackle glaze. xx

  8. Wow Jacquie this is amazing, I love the techniques and fab bird house. Hugs Jennifer xx

  9. Lots of lovely inky techniques Finished result is gorgeous I must try "inking" more - I' a bit shy of it

  10. This is a fabulous card Jacquie, so many lovely layers and great design.
