2 Turtle Doves

This is my second page for UK Stampers 12 Days of Christmas Challenge and I've used some new stamps that arrived yesterday from Crafty Individuals who used a courier service because of the current postal strike. Really fantastic service as they arrived in 3 days so thanks so much to Malcolm for that.

The 4x4 square of card was inked with various shades of Adirondack inks and then I stamped CI-237 on the right hand side with VersaFine Crimson Red ink and part of CI-258 in the remaining spaces with VersaFine Toffee ink.  I then added a little more of the Adirondack inks to make each stamped panel contrast.
I stamped the bird and branch images from CI-248 on cream card with VersaFine Imperial Purple ink and coloured them first with a mix of Adirondack and Distress inks and then added detail with pencil crayons.  I cut them out and inked around the edges with VersaColor Boysenberry ink as this gives a shadow effect and really makes the images stand out.
I stuck them on with foam tape and finished with a number and computer generated text which were both inked.
