Unusually I started with my hand-drawn border (in truth I was buying some thinking time as to what to do with the piece!). I thought I would use my new Indigoblu stamps - Enjoy Life. The miracle stamp caught my eye so I started by stamping this in the corner in black. I then used the corner of my clear block to create a frame around the words. I then went over the top and right side to create a heavier border and then on the other two sides with white gel pen to give the impression of dimension.
I stamped the little scroll stamp from the same set this time using the purple archival - it makes a lovely pattern when stamped side by side. I picked out some flowers to layer up and topped with a sequin.
I used the tall birch Memory Box die together with the perched bird also from Memory Box. I cut the tree twice and used the branches as extra. I coloured them using brown shades of Promarker and the bird with purple and magenta shades and added an eye and wing with a fineliner pen.
