Major Mitchell Cockatoo!

Yep, getting new supplies does make me want to stamp. Not that I have explored the possibilities of all my other supplies! I tried out embossing with some white sparkly powder but it didn't 'take' very well and was almost invisible on white cardstock. Maybe black or navy or dark brown - a dark colour anyway - cardstock would have been the better choice. Then I tried filling in the background with pale green ink and water washing it. I coloured in the cockatoo with crayola pencils. He was still insipid. So I resorted to my black pigment ink pen. That did it. Not the effect I wanted, and he has a different 'personality' than the stamped image, but I kinda like him!
