Birds

Hi there, I hope that you've all been making the most of the sunshine, despite the wind!  I'm just here with a quick post with a card that I'm entering in the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge which is 'Birds.' I bought quite a few new stamps recently from Inkylicious and this was one of them:

I started be stamping the birds using Versafine Onyx Black as this always gives a lovely clear image.  I coloured the birds using chalks.  The colour looks deeper in reality but I think the flash on the camera has bleached it out a little. The leaves were coloured using Marvy LePlume marker pens and then the colour was drawn out using a paint brush. I used Distress Tea Dye around the edges to give a vintage look as the name of the stamp is Vintage Birds. The card looked quite plain and so I added some leaves made with a Spellbinders die to echo the leaves on the main image.
I look forward to being back with you tomorrow morning with a post that is very special to me so I hope that you get a chance to look in :)

Lovely card - the first thing that struck me is how elegant the subtle colouring is, like an old tinted sepia photo, so I thought it was deliberate. Thanks for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz

I think you got the level of colours just right on this one Sandra, the hints of green really make the birds pop.
