I am finally getting around to trying some of the new stamps I received from Unity this month. I have many stamps with bird images on them, but of course could not pass up another one that had such a beautiful bird cage on it. I painted the little birds using my Stampin' Up Blender Pens. They are really great because they give a more subtle color than using a marker directly on the image. I picked up a little color off of the underside of a stamp pad lid with the blender pen, and applied it to the stamped image, and went over it a little more in the areas that I wanted a deeper color. Really easy, no watercolors involved, so the paper does not warp at all. Once I'm done with 1 color, I just brush the pen across a piece of scrap paper and it cleans off and is ready for a new color.
I'm entering this in several challenges-
Crazy 4 Challenges CSC124 where the requirement is to use Stripes and Polka Dots
Case Study CSC78, where there is an inspiration photo
Lily Pad Patterned Paper Challenge
Thanks for stopping by!
