Watercolor with Gansai Tambi Gem Colors

Hello friends!
I don't know about you, but one of the many stamped images I love are birds! 

This "Singsong" Cling Stamp from Penny Black is absolutely TWEET!

I used the larger bird image for my card design. This bird image has so many details and etched lines. It requires minimum/little coloring.

I normally would show the entire coloring in the rectangle. However, I didn't like how the background turned out.
miss you
I decided to die cut the circle and stamp the sentiment "Miss you"and used it like that.
I actually like it better as our eyes are drawn to the birdie even more!

 I did not have any trouble using Distress Oxide to ink up the images first.
Once dry, I applied Gem colors to add the shine.

A lovely card. I love bird stamps and this one is excellent! Your colors are wonderful, I especially your stamped bird and branch in a circle.

The coloring on that bird looks to use the vellum over the kraft cardbase. Adds a lot of depth. Your Virginia touches are particularly lovely on this one, too.

A fabulous image - I love it!

Fabulous Virginia. These PB sketchy stamps make it look like you have hand painted the image. The use of the part circle really makes an interesting card.
