Heart Bird


 This photo was my inspiration to sketch and stamp a tag.

First I drew the bird then covered it with white gesso and created a mask before stamping the background (Tim Holtz Dots & Floral) with a medium blue archival ink.

The rest of the color and shading was done with colored pencils and the text is a Remnant Rub. The trick with colored pencils is to use a light touch and layer the colors as most are transparent.

I'm linking up with Simon, the Monday challenge this week is to recycle--where my plain manila tag becomes a tiny work of art.

As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.

Until next time, take care.
