IBS Designer Feature

Happy Saturday everyone.

Today is my turn at being the Featured Designer at Inspired by Stamping.

I have been playing a lot with watercolouring. Sometimes I like to emboss my image first as it makes it a bit easier to work with. I decided to colour the Galah from the Australian Birds set.

Here is my card -

I'm lucky to have these birds visit the tree in my backyard almost every day. 

I started by embossing the Galah in black powder. Once dry, I used my Stampin' Up pads by pressing the case together so the ink would be in the lid. Then I used a small brush to add my colour.

I used my heat gun to dry the colours as I was working with them so I could add more depth here and there. 

Lastly, with a large brush I created the background and the splats around the bird.
