Brayered Marina Mist ink at the bottom of a 3″ x 6.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Brayered Perfect Plum ink at the top of the card stock.
Using the edge of a Basic Gray Stamp pad, smeared ink across the bottom of the card stock.
Ink the bird only on the Silhouette Sentiments stamp using a Basic Black marker and stamped it in the sky area.
Added a 1/4″ wide piece of Basic Black card stock and cut one end of it at an angle. Then cut it to be 1″ long.
Added legs to the bird using a Basic Black marker.
Added White Gel pen dots across the water.
Using the corner of a Whisper White Craft pad, smeared a bit in the sky for clouds.
Used a Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement of my sentiment. Stamped it in Basic Black ink.
Added a 4″ x 9″ Basic Black panel, 3.5″ x 8.5″ panel of Basic Gray, 3.25″ x 6″ panel of Marina Mist and a 1.5″ x 8.5″ panel of Perfect Plum.
Added a Karen Barber inspired bow of Whisper White Organza Ribbon, lol. She will be so proud of me, ROTFLMAO
Added a 3 1/8″ x 6 5/8″ panel of Basic Black and my Main image panel. Also added 4 silver brads to the corners of the main image panel.
