Birds of a feather with Susan K Weckesser/Studio 12

 Hi everyone, Tracy here today to share a quick project using 
one of the stamp sets that Susan K Weckesser designed for Studio 12 over at Polkadoodles and is available in the UK, woohoo!
It`s a cutie.
I will apologise in advance as I don`t have any step by step pictures today, but this is super easy to recreate, promise.
 Just start with a quick layer of Gesso over an off cut of wood, leave to dry or if you are impatient like me ... then blast it with your heat tool.
 Get out your Pan Pastels in 2 colors and apply all over the block of wood, apply some white Pan Pastel next and finish with a little Black Pan Pastel around the edges.
 Time to ink up the stamp using an Archival ink pad and color with Watercolor paints. To add more definition I went around the outline with a black liner pen, adding a few doodles along the way.
 Stamp the little birdie a second time and cut out the wing to make it look more 3D.
 Next I stamped the sentiment onto card, chopped it up and applied a little Walnut Stain Distress Ink with a blending tool around the edges.
I fixed them in place with a hot glue gun and added a few more doodles.
Can you see the text on the left . . . I applied Pan Pastel to a script stamp that I won from  
Unity Stamp Co recently { woohoo}and  randomly stamped it over the block of wood.
To finish a touch of a Clear Embossing pad followed by some Cosmic Shimmer Embossing powder for a little touch of texture.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
Till next time
Happy Crafting
