A little birdie ..
Special card as requested by Mum for a visually impaired friend. The card is inspired by Creative Stamping (UK) Issue 41 but with lots of extra work to make it tactile as the friend can only distinguish dark and light.
The stamp set came with the magazine. I stamped the background flowers with Barn Door Distress ink and used orange and yellow Distress Embossing powders to some rough texture. The central panel was pierced on the smooth (back) side then turned over so the holes can be felt. The bird and flowers are coloured using Distress Markers scribbled on an acetate block and applied with a water brush. All layers mounted, again for the tactile aspect. The flowers were then painted over with Liquid Pearls. Rhinestones add the final textural element. How long did it take? Don't ask 😉 .
