Let's Go Fly A Kite: A Birthday Card

The lyrics to this song ran through my head when I first saw this stamp set, so I thought I'd use some of them on my card.

Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Mark a light pencil line 1.5” from the bottom.
Using the Tall Letterbox Alphabet Outline stamps, add ‘Let’s go fly’ in Onyx Black Versafine stamp onto the line.
Add the kite from Barbara’s Kite Doodle stamp set in the same ink, with the tail dangling by the letters.
Finish off the song title using the same alphabet letters and ink as before. Erase the pencil line once the ink is dry.
Mask off the kite and use the cloud mask and Wild Bilberry Artistry ink with a clarity stencil brush to add clouds to the background. Brush upwards off the mask and gradually move the mask down the card.
Remove the mask and colour the kite with Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer water colour pencils, blended out with a large watercolour brush pen.
Add colour to the lettering using the coordinating Tall Letterbox Infill Alphabet stamps and Wild Bilberry Artistry ink.
Add to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
To finish, add a couple of stickers from the Christmas and Celebrations sticker set.
