I used markers to color the stamp for an ombré effect. I had to stamp this image numerous times before I had one that was usable. (I think my stamp may be a bit off because the bird portion just didn't seem to stamp well even from a pad -any suggestions?)
I really enjoyed the colors in this challenge - this palette is among my favorites!

Try stamping your card in Versamark FIRST and then your color. Solid stamps can be a challenge and I have filled waste baskets full with attempts to get a good stamp. Was advised of two things that help. This and a blender pen used lightly to fill in a bit.
Love this...I was also thinking along the idea of bluebird of happiness and never did anything with it. Glad you did! The shades you put together work wonderfully...soft and beautiful!
