A Tweet For You


Hello to all our friends in Cyberland!   Marie here and I want to share a "TWEET" - I mean treat bag I created using one of my favorite  Whimsy Meljen's Designs stamp paired with my Cameo Silhouette.
My stamp is a Whimsy Meljen's Designs Rubber Stamp called Garden Birdhouse. I wanted to create a treat bag for a friend who loves birds so I selected a simple treat bag design from my silhouette. I think this would be a great design that would work great for gifting flower seeds for that special gardner in your life.  It is that time of year and I plan to create a few different bags and treat boxes for flower seeds.
The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink on Cryogen Paper.    If you have not tried Cryogen -  give it a try. It is my favorite paper to use with Copics and Touch Twin ShinHan Markers.


I used  the following Copic Alcohol Sketch markers to color the image :
Birdhouse: E30, E31, E33, E35, E29 and E49. I used my Colorless Blender to help age the wood and
added a touch of BG23 to enhance even more the look of weathered wood
Grass/Leaves: G40, G43, YG63, G27
Birds: B000, B00, B02Background: I used my  Whimsical  Copic Faux Watercolor  technique. W0, W00, W1, BG000, BG00, Eooo and Colorless Blender

This cute little gift bag was cut using my Cameo Silhouette.

And this is my assembled project.
I just need to add some packages of flower seeds and the gift is ready for someone special.
