I recently acquired the cute stamp set - Fun & Fast Notes
Looking through my paper I noticed I had an abundance of pink paper (imagine that ) so even though I would have liked to do this little bird with nice bright shades of blue, I chose pink and brown. It also goes well with the other stamp I plan to use for the centre image. I did 10 cards and did 5 of this cute little bird and plan to do 5 with the Lamb from Pun Fun. I ordered this set and it's been sent to me, but I've not received it yet. I'm hoping to get it today.
For the colouring I used my blender pen again and ink pads. This time, instead of of colouring directly on the image, I used my scrap paper more, by first drawing on it until I had gotten the right amount of ink on my pen then coloured it. I went with the less is more approach this time. For the areas I wanted highlighted/a bit darker I went over again. I actually wish I had the SU markers to do this with, since with the blender pen, it can start to 'fuzz' the paper if you go over one spot too much.
I would have liked to do some stamping on the light pink paper, but I do not own any background stamps (I like the Sand Paper one) or other ones I thought looked 'right'. Of course last night as I lay tossing and turning in bed, I thought "hey I could have used my cuttlebug and embossed it using Spots on Dots or Divine Swirls.
