Anything goes ... Cute tweetie birds

I spotted these little bird stamps in a freebie set from a magazine and decided I wanted to try something a little different with them.

Firstly I masked off the central stripe on the card with making tape then I stamped the birds using some grey ink. I then stamped them again on post it notes and cut them out and covered over the stamped image on the card. Then I used my brayer to add the blue and green to the card. I didn't use an extra mask and just created a softer hill effect by not brayering straight! Then I uncovered the birds and coloured them with my promarker in a pale lemon colour. I then removed the masking tape mask. Then I stamped the ticket sentiment in black underneath the panel.

Really pleased with how this came out... Love it when I try something different and have this kind of a play!
