A Songbird from India

by Shilpa Nagaonkar



Song Thrush cling mounted stamp

Watercolour paper

Blank white folded card

Archival ink pad: Jet Black

Watercolour paints or pencils

Die cut word

3D Foam

Multi Medium: Matte


When I got this stamp, Song Thrush, from Chocolate Baroque I knew, it was going to be used for colorful card. I took watercolor paper and used the smooth side. I stamped the whole image on it with Ranger Black Archival Ink.

I've used artist grade watercolors here. I colored flowers, leaves and Bird first, using tone variations and then let it dry completely. Next I used dark yellow to color the background in this image.

I cut out the image leaving some white space and adhered it on another white card using foam adhesive. The word "Thanks" is a die cut from Mama Elephant, which I stuck on the panel using multi medium matte.

I hope I inspire you to be colorful and to create bright projects
