Something to crow about!

So I had FUN this morning! I combined three different challenges into one card. The Ismaki challenge sketch this week is used as the basic design, over a base dyed with Ecoline watercolour inks (available in Canada at Quietfire Design). I mixed the inks with some Winsor & Newton Iridescent Medium, and although you can't see it, there's a wonderful sparkly finish to the colour.

At Created by Hand, the challenge is crows. So I used three crows and a crown stamp,
all from Quietfire Design. I gold embossed and pop-dotted the crown.

And today is the first birthday of the Arty Girlz challenges, so their challenge is to create birthday cards.
So here's to a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our arty girlz Crissi and Julie!

Crows, crows everywhere....particularly love the regal one smack dab in the middle. There is such a sense of playfulness about this card, Deborah.
