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

Hi Everyone, Christine here with one of my favourite bird stamps and Simon Hurley stamping foam.
  • I stamped the large Simon Hurley stamping foam after heating into the embossing folder to create the image for stamping. 
  • swiped Distress Oxide inks over the surface of the foam and lightly spritzed with water before stamping on Mixed Media card stock. 
  • I let the image dry then stamped the image of the bird. 
  • The bird was coloured with pencils and gouache used for the white are on the face. Gouache is more opaque to cover the background colour.
  • I then stamped the wildflowers randomly over the background avoiding the bird.

You can see the foam stamping  and the background stamping more clearly in this picture.
