Market Street Stamps Block Party

Market Street Stamps is hosting their first Anniversary FIESTA and it all starts with THIS *Special Edition* Block Party! I couldn't resist to join the Market Street Block Party (details here)!! I mean....it's a PARTY!! They are offering some generous and amazing prizes! 

Here are the details from Market Street Stamps:
  1. Create any project you'd like, with any theme. BUT you must use Market Street Stamps. 
  2. The deadline to enter your project is Wednesday, October 19th @ 11:59 pm Central. 
  3. We will choose a select number of finalists. 
  4. Then, we will enable voting on Thursday, and everyone can vote for their favorite finalist.
  5. The winner of the contest will be announced on Monday, October 24th! 
  6. Link just one project per person for this Block Party.
I dig out my one and only set of MSS stamps called Follow Your Heart. I decided to focus the image on the biggest bird and added the extra dimensions with the wings! Here is the result.
your'e such a sweetie!
I had a lot of fun with the feathers. I stamped the wings multiple times and then colored them in copics. Lastly, I sponged the feathers with distress ink, Antique Linen.

I wish Market Street Stamps another SUCCESSFUL year ahead! Thanks for stopping by!
