Woodware - Sketch 41

I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year. But its back to the daily grind. After a couple of weeks off for the festive period the Woodware DT are back to showcase all the lovely goodies available from Woodware stockists. 
This is the first sketch challenge of the year. 

So a nice simple sketch to kick us off. And here is my take on it:

After making so many Christmas cards it was good to make something different. I chose the little Stampendous bird as my focal image. A sign of spring ... wishful thinking!!
The background was made using my favourite technique of blending several blue and green dye inks. Then add layers of stamping. I started with water stamping to remove some ink with a flourish stamp. I love seeing it all come together.

The little bird was stamped by applying brush markers directly onto the stamp. A light spritz of water gives you the effect that the image has been water coloured.
The quote I used as my sentiment comes from a Woodware set designed by Jane Gill.
That's it for now, time for a cup of tea and Silent Witness!!
