Autumn Pheasant

Happy Friday to you! This card has a very easy technique using torn post-it's and sponging on Whisper White cardstock to create layers in the ground. TIP - sponge the upper ground area first (the line of sponging that the pheasant is walking on in Close to Cocoa ink), then move your post-it upward at an angle to create your "second" layer, then up further to create the last layer. Turn this around so that the ground is on the bottom of your cardfront and use another torn post-it to protect your ground to sponge your sky background (I used Bordering Blue, Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie inks). I stamped the wheat stalks from Autumn Days and a floral selection of Pocket Silhouettes in Black and Close to Cocoa inks, then the Pheasant in Black ink. The pheasant was colored in with various markers, and a white gel pen was used to create the white band on the pheasant's neck.

This was matted with Really Rust (with the edge distressed with the cutter kit), white, and Only Orange cardstock, then adhered to a Black cardbase.

I hope you are having a nice Friday, and I'll see you again soon.
