Any hows, on with the card........
This is what I've come up with tonight, been quite fun to do as I've managed to combine (play) with a few of my favourite techniques.
I've used the masking technique to create the cloud and hills. The masks I've used are just ones I've cut from plain copier paper and I've applied ink using my Ink Dusters.I've stamped the tree in black, as it's such an in intricate design, it would be crazy to see if I over complicated it.
The 'Happy Birthday' and the birds on the wire sections of the card, are made using embossing folders on Core'dinations card and sanded back to expose the green core, as is the dotty background card.
Just to make it a little bit different, the ribbon strip at the side, has been mounted onthe inside of the card on the insert, rather than on the front.
