Bold Bluebirds

Another stamp I've had for ages and am not sure I've ever worked up.  Well, I love how it turned out.  I wanted bold and colorful and definitely achieved that--LOL.  I love the simple sentiment too.  If you look closely, you can see that I used a Marvy Uchida Snow Marker which puffs up with the application of heat.  Just as someone might go overboard bedazzling everything, I may start besnowing left and right!

The Details:  Stampendous Winter Birds, Marvy Uchida Snow Marker, VersaFine Onyx Black, Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black, Neenah 140lb solar white cardstock, Recollections 110lb white cardstock base, A Muse sentiment

Copics:  B21, B24, B26, E02, R21, R14, R17, R29, Y26, Y28 (bird); G21, G24, G29, E51, E53, E55 (scarf and hats); G28 (pine needles); E27, E29 (branch)

I'm entering this in Fusion (inspired by birds and greenery), Cupcake Inspirations #340 (inspired by colors and cuteness), Penny Black Anything Goes   
Update:  also entering Merry Monday Wings at Christmas
