I knew I wanted to use the colors for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge, so when I came across of piece of glossy photo paper that had missed the file bin (I was actually tidying up) I added the blending solution to wet. Dropped in the three colors from reinker bottles and dabbed stencil brush till colors moved to my linking. The stencil of these birds was still on my work station so I decided to take Golda’s advice and practice more. Using black modeling paste and spatula I was able to set finer details and less bleeding by moving slower and using more of a gentle flicking instead of pushing. Added the pink with a paint marker only on the beaks and then glossy accents. Splattered gold water color, then trimmed down. Used round punch for corners and layered on black cs. Cut sentiment strip and stamped in black. Added gold twine and black ribbon.

As You Like It: Ribbon and why Ribbon is like slimline cards, not my thing. I have tons of colors and styles of ribbon just seldom use it. Plus it usually adds thickness, hence postage costs.
