Bird of Paradise

Good Evening Crafters

Today we would like to share with you a creation made by the lovely Jennifer Johnston.  We hope that you will gain some inspiration from this beautiful card.


Base card has been coloured with Distress Inks then laid the flourish stencil down and dabbed some forest green ink though the stencil.
Once this was dry I laid the stencil down but moving slightly to one side of the forest green image and spread Sparkle Medium over the stencil. 
This was then matted onto the base card after I added ribbon around the centre once I had coloured with Pink Promarker Pen.
I cut out a scalloped circle from white card and coloured it to match the ribbon.
The flower was made from the same ribbon by using a running stich and gathering it up to make the flower shape.
The Bird of Paradise was stamped onto a scalloped circle of white card which I coloured to match the main card then overstampsed slightly to one side of the forest green image, using Sparkle Medium. I then matted this onto a slightly larger white circle which was then matted onto the pink scalloped circle.
I then coloured 3 lace flowers using the pink Promarker pen and glued them in position using Magi-Bond Glue.

  2. I like the way you've got a shadow effect by slightly moving the stencil between layers - very nice!

  3. The colour combination is really nice. I'm off now to try the shadow tip you shared!
