Another little birdy number...

....featuring the new Sheena Douglass bird stamps which will be launched on Create and Craft on Friday with shows at 11am, 4pm and 7pm........ started out as a plain wooden screen which I painted with gesso. Then when that was dry I lightly painted it with a couple of colours of Silks, now the Silks do dry quite quickly but before they were completely dry I used a slightly dry baby wipe to wipe off some of the colour to let some of the gesso show through. I used elements from the Ageing Beautifully set and the big swirl stamp from Flying Colours to add some more interest to the background before adding the birds and flowers.  I stamped these onto tissue, coloured with Spectrum Noirs, lightly painted the reverse with white acrylic and then glued in place.

I'll be back tomorrow with another little peek at one of the sample I've made for the shows.
