Coloured World of Dreams

Silhouette images offer a broad range of possibilities for techniques. One of my favourites is to colour directly on the stamp with markers and this image from World of Dreams works beautifully.

The "eggs" in the nest are shaped from punched card stock.

-ink the stamp with Crumb Cake ink
Colour the stamp with markers
-Old Olive on the leaves
-Soft Suede on the branches and nest
-Chocolate Chip on the branches and inside the nest
-Marina Mist on the bird heads and backs
-Blushing Bride on the bird breasts
-stamp on Naturals White card stock mat
-dot the bird eyes with Chocolate Chip
-ink dauber with Crumb Cake and sponge lightly on Soft Sky card stock
-use Cupcake Builder punch to cut "eggs" with candle flame
-use an embossing stylus to shape the "eggs" on a foam pad
-roll half a glue dot into a ball and adhere to back of "egg"
-adhere to nest on card front
