Free as a Bird - by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! It's my turn (Sioux) again and I'm here to share an ATC :)

1. Created the background on watercolour paper by swooshing Distress Ink Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw

2. Stamped the Gibson Girl 4 in Adirondack Archival Jet Black and coloured with Distress Inks Worn Lipstick for the lips, Tattered Rose for the face and Rusty Hinge for the hair 'cos she looks like a red head to me! LOL. Cut and Dry Nibs make this really easy as you can pick out the finest detail.
3. Stamped the bird cage from the Free as a Bird plate and embossed in gold and the sentiment in Adirondack Archival Jet Black
4. The corner detail was, in effect, a free stamp!! It was on one of my Artistic Stamper plates that obviously had been left behind as part of the manufacturing process...not saying yours will have one for sure but you never know!! Just inked up the area I needed :)

5. Tattered the edges and inked up with Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy to finish off.

6. Could not stop myself and did what I do a lot with ATC's and made it into a card
....adding a T!m corner scroll (Ooh! I do love that stamp!) in Distress Ink Pumice Stone (second stamping) and sentiment in Adirondack Archival Coffee

See you soon!

Another masterpice Sioux. I am drawn in by the colour choice, it works so well. Also, it's made a really good sized card for not much extra work. Brilliant.
