Because I had some time to stamp last week and I needed a card for a friend, it seemed like the perfect time to pull out this gorgeous stamp set from Stampin’ Up. I think the art on this bird is stunning!!! The best part of this set?? Less is more. (I know it shocks you to hear that I’d be drawn to a set like that, haha!) I stamped the image and the sentiment onto watercolor paper using WPlus9 Black Dye Ink. Then using a Zig Clean Color Pen in Light Blue I added in a bit of color to the bird. And a few sequins (some hoarded ones that I LOVE) from the Watercolor Wishes kit that matched perfectly just had to go on too. I put it on a Soft Sky base and cut the inside sentiment panel to match the layout of the front.
I rarely see a set that simply goes into my shopping cart without question and this was one. The set of 3 is perfect for sympathy cards but also for inspiration. Ok…quick post for today. Back tomorrow with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. Until then, have a great day!
