Today is the Day; Sing!

 My new favorite stamp set:  Market Street Stamps: Life is Beautiful.  I've used 3 of the stamps out of this collection:  Today is the Day was stamped on the background with versa mark, the little flower was stamped on the blue background around the edges & of course the beautiful bird with sentiment is the main focus.

I colored the stamps with aqua painter & stampin up markers.  
Ribbon:  brown; Really Reasonable Ribbon, yellow; Stampin up 
Die cuts: spellbinders
DP: MME, SU & Colorbok
Flower: Wild Orchid 
Stickpin: Little Yellow Bicycle
Bird was stamped with stazon black
flowers stamped with SU Early Espresso distress ink

I'm entering the following challenges:
iClassygirl  Sketch
Market Street Stamps color challenge
Paper Secrets distressing
Cut It Up use die cuts

Love how this turned out.  Can use for birthday or thinking of you.

I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice.

I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
