Birds On A Wire

Hello there, 

Just a quick post today with a card that I've made for this week's 'Less is More' challenge which is a sketch.   When I saw the sketch, I knew that my birds on a wire stamp would be perfect for this challenge and here's the card that I've made:

 Here's the sketch that I've used:

I knew that I would be water colouring the birds and so I heat embossed them with a detailed black embossing powder.  This provides a barrier for the paint and also gives the image a nice, crisp outline.

The stamps that I've used are all by Inkylicious and the inks that I've used are:
  • Versafine - Black Onyx
  • Impress - Lemon Yellow, Mustard, Pale Aqua, tangerine
  • Distress - Fire Bricked Red
Enjoy the rest of your evening and I'll be back with you again tomorrow with more of this weekend's makes. :)
