Todays card is one I have made for my husband Shaun's birthday - its not until June but I wanted to use this stencil and stamp set from Clarity as soon as I got them - so here's the result:
I used a 7x7 piece of clarity card and added the stencil then applied grunge paste through it - whilst this dried a stamped and coloured the woodpecker - and fussycut him. Then I applied mowed lawn DI to the field and brwon panpastels to the trunk. I added light blue panpastel to create the sky then stamped and coloured the foliage with spectrum noirs. The sentiment is from whimsy stamps. Then it was just a case of matting and layering.
