Voice Like A Nightingale


Back for week four as a Guest Designer for Layers Of Color
I used the Bird Queen cling art stamp and Royal Birds stamps.
I sponged over the flourish art stencil with embossing ink then embossed with brass EP. 
Colored the birds and crown with markers.
Machine stitched around the paper mounted to a black base.
