Bloggers Challenge Birds

This week the Bloggers Challenge is Birds. I love bird stamps, so the hardest part of the challenge was to narrow down which stamps I wanted to use. I chose this large stamp from Stamp Camp. I started with a pulled glimmers background from Technique Junkies. The stamp was stamped over the background. I used Copics to add color highlights to the image. When looking for the appropriate sentiment, the word Paradise seemed perfect. The abalone shell colored pearls added the finishing touch.
