Stamp of the MOnth Blog Hop: Sunshine Birdies

Welcome to a new month!

That means there's a new STAMP OF THE MONTH... woohooo!

If you're coming from Michelle's blog you're headed in the right direction.  If you're just starting here- no worries!  You will be able to circle around and see all the great artwork.

This month we are featuring Sunshine Birdies... a cute stamp set that screams SPRING!

Here's a look at the stamp set itself:
As always, our stamp of the month runs $17.95 OR only $5 with a purchase of $50 or more.
I had a LOT Of FUN working with this set.  It's got all the necessary parts to create a fun scene.
I started out with some watercolor paper.  I wet the paper with my CTMH paintbrush (which does not shed!!!  LOVE our brushes... and I paint a LOT)
I painted some green, blue and yellow on the paper as shown and allowed it to dry.  I used the CTMH watercolor paints for this project- I actually use them on almost all of my cards these days.
I Used Memento black ink to stamp all the images and then followed up with additional coloring using my watercolor pencils.
I colored 3 gems with my Shinhan marker and attached them to the bottom right corner.
I took a piece of aqua shimmer trim the same length as my painted paper and cut it into a curvy strip.  It's self adhesive so I just peeled the backing off and stuck into place.
HOpe you enjoy this!!

Next up visit Helen's blog to see what she's created!
