Link in the chain - February

It's time for the reveal of the Card Chain Challenge for February! As usual we had lots of options to play with - I chose the theme of birds and the colours (honey, raspberry,  strawberry). My card has gone to Gail who does a fabulous job each month as part of the team who keep us all organised!

I inked up my circular Gel Press Petite rather like a big stamp (I will get round to using it some other way soon!) and then sponged extra ink over the impression to blend a bit more. I thought the colour combination was quite reminiscent of a sunset.

I added tiny speckles and "twinkles" in faint colour by stamping off on scrap first.

Another gorgeous CCC make, Joanne! Love how you interpreted the challenge this month. Thanks also for your kind words about Gail - she is one in a million and works so hard to make this challenge 'work'. Hugs, Jo x

Oh My goodness, you ladies are making me blush. I know I've already told Joanne how much I love this card, but I would just like to let the rest of the world know that I consider myself very lucky to have this beauty in my possession. It's so lovely. Thanks Joanne, for your kind words, for your amazing card and for being a link in the Card Chain Challenge chain. HUGZ

That is a great sunset color combo. As always I am a fan of black and bold color contrasts and you are so good at that!

I just love those colours with the dramatic black and white bird in front. It is stunning. I have several gel plates which I must get out and use more often if this is an example of what you can make with them xx
