I fell in love with this Hero Arts bird called "Wise Bird" . I tucked a woodgrain heart safely under his wing to deliver a message to a special friend. 
The Pinstripe background was used several places. I stamped it in Soft Pool  ink behind the bird & in white ink on the Spellbinder frame. 
Before you cut your images put Glossy Accents on them. (The GA gives the image more structure.) I left a boarder around the images when I was trimming the leaves & branches. The wise bird was colored with Copic markers & I used a white gel pen on the wings & his chest. Enamel Accents on the eye. The sparkles on the heart are Rock Candy
I love the Leafy Vines and used it to decorate my flower pot die from Spellbinders. Some distress ink really made the vines stand out. 
For this card I created a bird house out of the flower pot with Hero Arts "Sunshine Papers". This heart die cut from Simon Says delivers another special message. I stamped the heart with Hero Arts "Leafy Vines" and a sentiment. The Pinstripe background was used again on this card but, I used it with the lines going two different directions. So fun!
This Wise Bird was colored only with distress ink. White accents were added with a gel pen. Enamel Accents were added to the eye again.

One last card...a fun, quick and happy card. 
Yes, I had to use the Pinstripe background just one more time. It was begging to be colored! 
I stamped the flower in Hero Arts "Grape Juice" ink and sprayed this on the has a wonderful soft sheen. In the center dots I added Enamel Accents again. (Always practice on some scrap paper first)
The pinstripes were colored with Copic markers. This 40lb vellum was placed on top for a softer look. The yummy ribbon is a twill chevron 3 pack.

what's new

Hello Friends, How are you today? I was unpacking my carry on from a trip during the holidays and thought I would share what I colored while traveling. (The air plane can be a great place to color.) You may notice similar colors because I only pack a few handfuls of Copics.  
I have been anxious to bring these images to life on a card. Have you seen the new Penny Black images? You can see a few of my favorites below. Have a great day! Hugs, Kathy
