Hello and welcome back, it’s Karen here again. Today I’ve got a card featuring a new stamp set by Gerda Steiner Designs called “Pigeons”. There are five pigeons in this set, and you just know they all have fun, expressive faces! Here’s a look at the card I made.

I coloured in the pigeons with Copic markers (N6, N4, N2, N1, N0). To add the interference sparkle to their necks, I used some Cosmic Shimmer Opal Crush Polish in Golden Blackberry. It doesn’t show up very well in the picture, but there really is a nice sparkle and hints of purple and green on their necks.
For the background, I used some Distress Oxide Ink in Tea Dye and Mowed Lawn to create the foreground on my card front. I added in some grass and pebbles with Copic markers. I used Colour Cloud Ink in Clear Day to freestyle add a sky and some clouds. The trees (Memory Box - Alpine Trees) were inked up with Distress Oxide Ink in Rustic Wilderness.
I stamped and clear heat embossed the sentiments which are in the stamp set. The pigeon on the left was glued in place. I mounted the two pigeons on the right on foam tape and positioned them on the card front. Finally, for the pigeon droppings, I added some Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and heat set it. Once it was dry, I added a little N4 Copic marker to it. Don’t you just love the expressions on those pigeons?!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!
