The August challenge with my on line cardmaking group was to use a solid stamp and to use white pigment ink to stamp it with, on a dark colored card stock, give it a little time to dry or heat dry it, I decided to let mine air dry, I can't seem to be able to use my heat gun without curling the paper. I used a yellow and orange to color the bird and then used greens on the leaves and brown on the branches. I also added some stickles to the berries to highlight them a little more. It does give the image a nice textured feel but it doesn't look as neat as the example one of the girls shared with us. My husband said it looked almost metallic looking. The sentiment banner was hand cut.

Wow our temp is at 74 in the middle of the afternoon, can you believe it. It was weird this morning walking out of the grocery store and not being hit with such awful heat. Looks like we are going to have a couple days like this before it goes back up, this is just perfect for me :) Hope your weather is nice wherever you are.
Thanks for stopping by, and your sweet comments,
