Songbird Serenade

Serenade, a new Stampendous sentiment stamp fits perfectly with Penny Black's Sweet Melody set. Love the way the birds are drawn with the swirls for feathers. The little music notes are from Crafty Secrets.

A card in blues and greens, with a touch of gold.  Images and background are colored with Copics after stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Parts of the cage are colored with a gold gel pen and all of the images have touches of a clear glitter gel pen added for accent. After coloring it still needed something, so I spritzed it with a couple of Stampin' Up! markers using a Stampin' Up! spritzer tool.  The edges are sponged with Stampin' Up! Bermuda Bay and Glorious Green ink.  Then Color Box Gold ink was also added around the dges of the main image, although it's hard to see in the picture.  The mat is a green scrap cardstock and the new SU Coastal Cabana cardstock.  Love their new In colors this year.

Have a great day.

You used a marvellous panel of colours on this card. And I suppose it must be much more beautiful "in real life", with the gold accents. I love it :)
