CDS Sneak Peek - Winged Whispers

Phew! Here we are at the final day of the CDStamps sneak peeks and I just have one more set to show you! It's called Winged Whispers and it's my other new release in the Dreamtime Designs line for the month of October :) This set has some really beautiful sentiments in it as well as 4 different birds: a cardinal, a kingfisher, a sparrow and a robin. To see a picture of the full set, please click here.

I love the fact that this is the final card that I get to show you for this set of releases! It's the first time that I have tried to make a tent topper card and I combined it really some really subdued colours. I wanted to make my beautiful blue kingfisher really pop so I sponged in some inks to create a graduated pastel background.

The bird was watercoloured with my tombow markers and aqua painter. I then cut out the wings and popped them up to create a more realistic bird. We have so many of these lovely creatures around here that I wanted to immortalize one onto a stamp :)

Thanks so much for coming by to see all of the cards that I have been busily working on. All of the stamps that I have shown you will be available on October 1st. Don't forget to pop by the blogs below to see what the other girls have been creating :)
