Spring Robin

It's been snowing here! What is up with that?  To conteract the winter blahs, I'm posting a springy card.   Hey, look at that - there's actually stamping on my card!

I think Penny Black stamps are fantastic; they're great for using markers to color directly onto the stamp so you can blend and smudge and mix.

I used Memento markers on the bird image and the leaves (I really love how the leaves turned out) and stamped it on glossy paper (I added the eye after I stamped it).  I stamped the sentiment on vellum and layered it over the glossy - it's hard to tell in the picture, but there is a subtle layering effect.

Enjoy and thanks for looking!

This turned out wonderful, looks like you hand water colored it.

Oh yes bring on spring. Robins are always the first sign of spring around here. Lovey card.

Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I did take pictures of the doll when I brought her home. I'm trying to find them on my computer ,no luck so far. I'll keep looking
