wren in my garden (revised)

 This is an example of my favorite technique, Emboss Resist. And of course I HAD to brayer the ground as well to give it depth.

I stamped and colored the wren and plants from An Open Heart stamp set with Stampin' Write markers and then using a Versamark pen and clear embossing powder, embossed the images. After that I stamped my favorite Hardwood background and then added a few little finishing touches such as those banners, ribbon and feathers with pearls and it was done.

Birds make me so happy. You, too?

I'm really liking that little row of pearls on the feather! I've been longing for that hardwood stamp for awhile. I think birds are pretty but I haven't done a lot with them. Now bird cages... that I like. And yes, I really like using my brayer...
