Sing From The Soul

Time for my weekly post for Artistic Outpost (stamps available from Our Daily Bread Designs). This week I am showcasing the Birds of a Feather stamp set.
The background is a mop up from a previous project. Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron along with a touch of Spiced Marmalade Distress Paint were added to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with water and I then mopped up the beads of paint with the card.
I stamped the bird with black Archival Ink and then added a circle of paint around the focal image to act as a spotlight.
Distress Crayons have been applied over stencils to add layers of further interest to the design.
The sentiment is from the Songbirds stamp set.
Splatters of white and Twisted Citron paint have been added for further interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Oh - it's soooo GORGEOUS Tracy. Love every inch of it. And the sentiment is very special. When someone SINGS FROM THE SOUL - it's so amazing - I get chill bumps - you can just feel the difference. And even a bird - there are times when I wonder if God gave that bird a special tune from the soul - just for me because it sounds different than the norm. Thanks bunches for touching my heart! Xj.
