Magenta birdies

I fell in love with these birdies - and the paper! Paper is Basic Grey and is from Joy and Daisy's store - www.eclecticpaperie.com. Fabulous selection, fabulous prices and super-fast shipping! Birdies were stamped on a piece of Arches watercolor paper, then watercolored with Adirondack dye based reinkers in Lettuce, Cranberry and Stonewashed. A faint wash of Slate created the shadowing around the birdies. Oval shiny gold picture frame hanger added interest and a bit of cotton twill ribbon gave it a homespun feel, adding to the whimsical feel of this card. card size: A6. Magenta birds image (L.0477); Basic Grey bird patterned paper (Phoebe), Arches watercolor paper, black and brocade blue cardstock (SU); Adirondack dye reinkers in Stonewashed, Cranberry, Slate and Lettuce; circle punch, picture frame hanger, brads.
