I took the time to play in the Featured Stamper's Challenge today on Splitcoast. It was a gallery that I hadn't been to before, and I loved cruising through it to see all her fabulous cards! The Featured Stamper today is Dawnsing . Be sure to check out her gallery.

The card I chose to CASE can be seen HERE . I changed the colors, paper and stamps, but kept her layout.

All stamps used on this card are from the Hero Arts Trees, Birds and Messages clear stamp set.

I stamped the bird and branch on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The branch was colored using Tombow (water based) markers and a blender pen. To color the bird I used Tombow markers and a damp paint brush to get a lighter and softer look. I was attempting to match the color of the bird to my ribbon. I guess I got close enough.

The designer paper is from the Memory Box Sugar collection, and the 1"satin ribbon is from May Arts. I added 3 Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest for more texture and interest.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by!
