Birds of a Feather.

Good morning! Today's image created a wonderful challenge for me, and I learned a lot while researching the colours of birds. I'm sure you know how we are losing our rainforests, but did you know that we are losing 137 birds, plants, and insect species very single day? There are so many interesting statistics out there, and so many web sites dedicated to the deforestation of rain forests.

On a more positive note, these birds have been coloured with Prismacolour pencil crayons and blended with OMS. These are their true colours.

This is the stamp that I used. The wooden block is 5" x 6" and is from Coronado Island Stamps. The name of this stamp is Birds of a Feather. Image was stamped onto SU white cardstock because it produced the best results, as it is such a detailed stamp. Because I wanted to use my Tombow markers, I stamped this image onto two different weights of watercolour paper without success. I then used a low quality white paper without getting the results I was looking for. SU white cardstock is heavy and very smooth. Perfect for this stamp!

Enjoy your day, and thanks for stopping by!
