Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

 Hi Everyone, it's Christine here playing with this sweet bird stamp.
My background is a gelli print which I stamped the peacock feather on the acrylic paint on the  gelli plate before I lifted the print. When you stamp on the gelli plate you actuall lift the paint off and leave the imprint image. I used a textured linen card stock which added to the texture on the lifted print. If you use this technique remember to have some spare card so you can stamp the image and not waste the paint.
I stamped the branch in Versafine Clair (Nocturn) and added the script in Ranger archival ink (Watering can) randomly over the card. The bird was stamped on the base card then again on watercolour card. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and fussy cut it out. 
I like to stamp the image on my base card first because if you have any fine detail that's difficult to fussy cut you can just cut through and not worry about it. If you look at the birds feet they are on the base card, I didn't want to fussy cut them out so I cut them off. I also outlined the edge of my image with a brush tip marker to remove any white bits that were badly cut. I'm such a cheater when it comes to fussy cutting😀
 

 
 Here is a close up of the bird.
