All Creatures Great and Small....


All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors,
and made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
God made them every one.

God gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful
The Lord God made them all.


That's one of my favourite hymns. And I've been singing it for the last several days!!! Very appropriate since it is springtime.....well, technically, anyway. The reason it got stuck in my head is because the Cute Card Challenge theme this week is 'All Creatures Great and Small'. So we had to make a 'cute' card (good thing, since cute cards are my favourite) with some sort of animal or creature on it! Well, since I've only inked up Tilda and her little birdie once before, I figured it was time for her to come out and play again!!!

This time I stamped the image on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured her in using my Copic markers. The colours are taken from the dp which is from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy stack. I really loved the blues, greens and purples in this paper. The striped dp is covered in sparkles just like Tilda's little wings which I covered in Diamond Stickles. Also instead of shading around her using the lightest gray marker, I chose instead to use a very light lavender colour. You can barely see it in the photo, but trust me, it's there and it goes really well with the colouring of the card. The card base is Taken with Teal and I also used So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Lavender Lace. I added some white taffeta ribbon, two glittery heart foam stickers and I also used my mat pack on the corners and the scalloped circle. I used several circle punches for the sentiment piece and I used my go-to MFT set, Essential Sentiments for the sentiment layer. You like???
