Little Brown Bird

This lovely little chap is another stamp from the stamps that come free with issue 16 of Creative Stamping.  I started by painting the tag with an antique white and a pale brown shade of acrylic paint using vertical brush strokes so that they were visible and part of the background texture.

Next I stamped using the script from Tim Holtz Royal Script stamp using Versafine Smokey Grey ink, I also stamped the crowns in a couple of places too.

Next I stamped the Chocolate Baroque harlequin border stamp (from Decorative Edges set) using Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I then left aside to dry.

I stamped my bird and watercoloured using Walnut Stain, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Aged Mahogany distress inks and cut him out as close as I could .

I stamped all the greetings from the magazine stamps using black stazon and added the easter egg border and the music border top and bottom from the same set.  I then fixed my bird over the top.

I like all the muted brown shades on this one!

happy crafting
