A Panel Card Using Small Stamps

I decided to use some of the smaller feather stamps which come with the Cherry's Bird of Paradise stamp set to create this panel card.
Mask off a 4.5cm panel 3.5cm from the bottom of a 7” x 7” piece of Clarity stencil card.
Stamp the feathers from the Cherry Green Bird stamp set into the panel in Majestic Blue Versafine ink.
Remove the masks and cut out the strip from the stencil card. Lay down colour around the feathers using a yellow ochre watercolour pencil.
Blend out the colour with a water brush and dry the panel.
Add orange shading around each feather using a water colour pencil, this time without blending.
Mat the strip onto dark blue card leaving a narrow border top and bottom.
Add the panel to the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank (3.5cm from the bottom).
To finish, add one of Barbara’s word stickers and go round the edges with the same orange pencil used earlier.
