Blue Bird of Spring

Several of the new Shimmerz colors arrived in my mailbox this week and they are fantastic!

This little Memory Box bird was just crying (cheeping) out for some sparkle, so I cracked open the new Under the Sea Blingz for him.

First, the image was stamped with Stazon ink on water color paper and painted with a light wash of SU inks. Then Under the Sea Blingz was painted onto the bird, Celery Shimmerz onto the leaves and Bubblegum Shimmerz onto the flowers. [Sorry this close up is a little dark, Spring has barely begun where I live.]
Head over to the new website and check out all those yummy new colors.

Happy Spring!
