Early Morning

Today I'm back with my third project
as part of the Catchy Crafts Creative Team.

Cut a piece of ivory card 120mm x 120mm and starting with'fossilized amber', blend over the entire card.  Next blend 'spiced marmalade' through the sunbeam stencil and continue over the 'fossilized amber'.  Starting at the bottom and working your way up, blend 'worn lipstick' until it merges with the 'spiced marmalade'.  Again starting at the bottom, blend 'fired brick' about a quarter of the way up until you're happy with the depth of colour.  Finish with a final layer of 'fossilized amber', blending all the colours seamlessly.

From black card and using the Dies, cut two sets of 'lavender stems' 
and various birds from the 'birdcage' die.  When I was happy with the arrangement, they were glued into place.

Mat the card front onto another piece of ivory, then a black mat and finally onto a folded ivory card.
