BirdSong CJ Entry

Here is a CJ entry I have completed for a Circle Journal group over on UK Stamper Forum.  The pages on this particular journal are small  and I had to use a supplied stamp in the design.  The little birdie stamp is just that !

I associated birds with song and found a music stamp which was just the right size to make a plate, linking the song with the bird.

I started with the blank white card and worked directly onto it.  I first stamped with tan Colorbox pigment ink with a swirl stamp and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  Once cool I sprayed with some Moonshadow Glitz Spritz mica sprays in desert moon horny toad and royal crimson fire, drying between sprays and building up a decent mica layer.  The finish is subtle but very iridescent (unfortunately it's very difficult tp photograph because of this). 

I then took a thistlehead stamp (PaperArtsy) and inked this with Adirondack cranberry dye ink, followed by oregano ink and whilst still wet again heat embossed with detail clear EP.

Next I stamped the bird (supplied) and the music (Crafty Individuals) onto straw coloured card with Versafine onyx black ink and trimmed both images out.  I then edged both with burnt sienna chalk ink and coloured the eye blue and the beak yellow.  The images were then applied as shown with Glossy Accents with the bird holding the music in its beak.  I then edged the page with burnt sienna chalk ink and applied rub-on letters as shown.

Hope Efemera like it !!
