The Inkylicious stamp Bird on a Wire was purchased at a recent craft show here in the UK and I will say it was not a good idea to stamp it onto watercolour paper. I think a smoother surface would do the stamp more justice. I coloured the birds in using Distress Ink and a blender pen. The sentiment is one from Gina K Designs Purr-fectly Delightful.

I did have a problem with stamping out this image and eventually used a rocker type acrylic block plus Versafine Onyx black ink. It did not stamp well and I needed to go over the image with a black marker. Afterwards I looked online and someone suggested stamping on top of a ream of paper - will try that next time. The birds were from an Inkylicious set called Daydreamer and the flowers inked up in Archival Berry Purple were from a Stamps Away set Pilkington Floral Silhouette. The sentiment is from Flourishes Kids at Play.
I liked having the topper all prepared - it makes it a lot easier and silhouette stamps are a favourite of mine so I am looking forward to trying more out in the future.

The recipe for this card is simple : 2 Spellbinders Circles, 1 Cuttlebug embossing folder, 1 Silhouette Couple to which you add a sentiment from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings. Creating this card has reminded me to go into my stash and try to use up my large drawer full of blank cards. Need to start to get my supplies down to a manageable level before we move again !
