I wanted to make a couple Birthday cards and Sympathy cards. The Best Birds stamp set is perfect for either. As I was looking at cardstock scraps, this quad of colors really spoke to me. They are so pretty together and work beautifully with the Best Birds bundle on page 53 of the Annual Catalog.
I stamped the bird in Staz-On Jet Black on Shimmery White cardstock. In real life, you can still see the shimmer on the bird through the ink. The Aqua Painters make painting a dream since the water is contained in the handle.
