Song Sparrow

Very pleased wth the outcome of this fairly-simple mixed-media index card:

Supplies and notes:

  • Index card divider coated with Teresa Collins modeling paste mixed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Dark Chocolate Truffle through Tim's Roses stencil*
  • Card inked with Mustard Seed DI
  • A spot was highlighted with white Liquitex gesso
  • Bird fussy-cut from a field guide sent by the wonderful AOP and adhered with Distress Collage Medium in matte
  • Book clippings from three separate books adhered with more Distress Collage Medium in matte
  • Tumbled Glass Distress Crayon added last to the book clippings and to outer parts of the gesso-highlighted area
  • Oh... I wrote "song sparrow" with a Micron...
*You'll be seeing this background again... I was overzealous when scooping the modeling paste and made a bunch of backgrounds...
... the stencil didn't even get all icky... I was in the Goldilocks Zone of stenciling!  I felt like Ice Cube singing "Today was a good day..."

I'll share this at the following challenges:
