Glorious Day

When I posted my first card made with this stamp I mentioned a second I had completed when I knew the image better. In this one I managed to keep the snowy areas white from the beginning rather than dilute them after I realised my mistake! I used fewer inks and left the leaves on right side of the stamp unstamped.

I stamped bird, perch and foliage in antique linen first then went over the perch and leaves as with vintage photo and black soot distress markers. I stamped then blended with water before adding ink to the berries with festive berries and barn door distress markers. To colour the bird I switched over to my watercolour pencils, picking up colour from the lead with a small damp watercolour brush.

I finished off the card with a sentiment stamped in versafine vintage sepia then popped up the panel on craft foam.
