Red, Brown and Kraft.

I have just got this new stamp from The English Stamp Company and was desperate to ink it up.  As
soon as I saw the stamp on the shelf in my local stamp store I had to buy it, what a great image for simple Christmas cards.

After inking the image with versamark ink I coloured in the Partridge with a red Tombow marker and then stamped onto my paper, I covered the image with gold powder, brushed off the powder on the bird and then heated.   Next I stamped again and cut out the bird to make a mask before stamping over with the HA Music Background stamp and Old Paper distress ink.

Its been a while since I had time to take part in the CR84FN challenge but the colours this week tied in perfectly with the card I had in mind for this stamp.

Just a short post today, hope you are having a good week.
