Time to Fly

Greetings!  My post today is for the current challenge over at Make My Monday where the theme celebrates Earth Day and Nature.  I really love bird imagery and was excited to pull out some older stamps from Red Lead Paperworks.  I began by applying Bister to Hot Press Watercolor paper.  I wasn't sure I needed Bister when I purchased it, as I already have Brusho, but am glad that I decided to get it after all.  The colors are much more muted, perfect for this type of scene.  The birds were watercolored with TowBow Markers and the edge of the panel was stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  A simple bow fashioned from ribbon purchased from the Funkie Junkie Boutique and my card is complete.  Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Yvonne
