Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi everyone, I have a clean and simple one layer card for you today.
I stamped the bird and used pencils to colour it in, and then made a mask to cover the image. I placed the mask over the bird and placed the leaf stencil over it. I then used distress inks and blending brushes to lay the colour down. I then placed the star burst stencil over the masked image and the leaf stencil to keep the stenciling within the leaf shape. 

I hope you like the effect of layering the stencils. 
When I removed the mask from the bird I used a medium gray pencil to create a little bit of shading on the lower edge of the bird to give it a little more depth.

It's amazing that this is a one layer card Christine. It looks like several layers with your masterful colouring of the bird. Great design!
