MY CARD FOR THE BLOG HOP



My take on this Spread Joy Not Germs Blog Hop is to encourage all the humans those who are going through hard times and those who are helping the society selflessly. Please watch the video to learn how I made this card.


I'm here with a very sweet card for you and this card features Wonky Triangle Stencil, Toucan Do It Stamp Set, You Did It Stamp Set, Minto To Be Ink and Midnight Ink by Catherine Pooler Designs.


I started by watercoloring the bird with Faber Castell Water Color Pencils, fussy cut it and kept aside.


Then ink blended the background with Mint to be ink, placed the stencil and applied the same ink through it. I removed the stencil and added splatters of Mint to be ink and gold paint to enhance the beauty of the card design.


I foam mounted the bird and adhered the leaves with Tacky Glue. Finally I finished the card with a sentiment from You Did It stamp set. Do hop along and win some exciting prizes. Thanks for stopping by.

I salute all the Doctors and Nurses, Police and Volunteers and especially the Municipal Workers. Yes! You can do this, we can do this. Let's kick the virus from our universe. #StayHomeStaySafe.
