Today's offering uses the stamps that came with creative stamper magazine issue 16. I started with a piece of centura pearl and using the matte side i inked the background using ombre' technique with distress inks. I used persimmon. spiced marmalade, dried marigold, wild honey and scattered straw.
Then i brayered over with wet elastic bands and after afew secnds blotted with kitchen towel. This creates the streaky background.
Using orange blossom archival ink i stamped the nest and sentiment. Using a wet brush I bleached some colour from eggs and flowers and some leaves. Then I added clear wink of stella tp eggs and butterfly.
I then stamped bird randomly using the distress inks. i also added the music .
To add some more interest and texture to background, I inked through a Tim Holtz stencil with versamark and clear embossed in opposite corners.
I matted it on a piece of Tim Holtz 6x6 co'ordinations card and stuck dome ribbon on base card that was 7x7. I finished card off with flowers and leaves from Sweet lilac flowers.
I hope you like my creation and remember that i love to read your comments, Theresa xx
