Birds in the Garden

This scene is one stamp made by Magenta.  The background peacock feather design is a paper napkin that was fastened to the cardstock using Mod Podge.  The embellishment is a real peacock feather pinned to the card with a velvet covered brad.  Coloring done with Copic Markers and glitter pens.

I bought a new stamp called Oriental Blossoms, from Local King Rubber Stamps, and tried a couple of different color schemes.  This one has cut-outs that allow a printed paper to show from underneath, and both are layerd over glittery scrap book paper.

Beautiful Wishes

Oriental Blossoms stamp is from Local King Rubber Stamp.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up


The koi stamp and wave stamp are from Paper Source (my favorite store!), and match the washi paper from the same store.

This was an experiment to see if I could use boldly patterned scrapbook paper as background for a quick scene.  The only stamp used is the stamp of the frogs.  Colored with Radiant Pearls to match the shiny embossed printed paper.
