Somebirdy Special

Hi everyone,
Here is a sweet little card made using 2 of Magnolia's new stamps, This is 'Tilda with birdcage' and the sentiment ' For somebirdy special'.

The images have been stamped and embossed using black pigment ink and sparkly black embossing powder. I have chosen today to colour with my Lyra watercolour crayons.
I love these crayons as they can give you a great combination of muted or stronger more vibrant colours. They are very easy to use and due to their blending capabilities you can easily turn your set of 48 colours into 100's of different shades.

I find watercolour best with an embossed image so I can keep my colours defined. With a non embossed edge the colours will tend to run together. (Sometimes with simple designs eg. brush flowers, this is ideal, but not for today's style of image.)

Heavenscent Crafts is the place in Australia to buy these gorgeous stamps They also stock many other great stamp companies not available anywhere else in Australia. click HERE for their website. If you want a particular stamp not shown on the website give them a call and they will be only to happy to help.
Until Next Time
Inking of you all
