My Hero

Hi All,

It's Inspiration time over at STAMPlorations. I was playing around and decided to go grungy mixed media for my DT piece with a little bit of recycling thrown into the mix ...

Let's start with the recycling ... the card base is made from card Shery used as packaging and the bird is die cut from a piece of old cook book paper. I die cut the bird from a piece of mustard spritzed book paper and doodled the bird myself. The die itself is from the Birds Of Paradise Coordinating CUTplorations Die set. Once finished with the doodling, I added some shading using a matching Promarker. The background is made from a Gelli Plate print I created a while ago using the ARTplorations Bloom Factory Stencil. I sponged the edges with a Tangerine Tango ink and added some more detail to my print and the base card using stamps from the Mixed Media Elements and Hashtag Authentic sets. I attached the bird and added some doodles before finishing off with a sentiment from the It's All About You set.

Here is a last look at my finished card ...
