Feathers & Florals On An October Afternoon

I feel like a poet, hahaha! Happy Monday, I hope you had a lovely weekend.
Today, I'm excited to share a sneak peek of one of the newest sets to be released from Clear Artistic Stamps tomorrow (Tuesday, 10/14). This image and sentiment are from Birds Of A Feather, which is such a gorgeous stamp set. I colored it in with my Copic Ciao "Retro" markers, then traced around the entire image with my Prismacolor marker in Cool Grey 20% (PM-109). I feel that this marker is the perfect color for shadowing around any image and I continuously go back to it again and again for use in this area. I also sponged around the image with 3 shades of Stampin' Up! ink--summer sun, pumpkin pie and old olive. The base card stock is from the Prismatics Spring Willow paper collection in a wonderful medium green. I added some red grosgrain ribbon and caramel specialty trim from my stash to finish the card. Thanks so much for popping in! I would love to invite you to our Clear Artistic Stamps Release Party Chat tomorrow evening for fun and games and some special surprises! Plus, Belinda has cooked up some fun games for you to play at our Chat Party Fun page! Have a creative day! xoxo
