Chocolate Baroque: Krafty Kingfisher

Hello, friends! I'm back with another project idea. This time I'm going for an intensely vintage look using an image from the Kingfisher Song A5 stamp sheet by Chocolate Baroque.

I stamped the kingfisher onto a piece of kraft cardstock using Ranger Archival Potting Soil ink and coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos. For that aged look, I applied Distress Inks in Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo all around the edge of the card. Finally, some Stardust Stickles and little white dots on the water to brighten things up.

The bird was joy to colour. I could not resist adding a little shimmer to his feathers with the Clear Wink of Stella. His eye is a black bling. There's a hint of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink in the sky and I added the puffy clouds with white Polychromo pencil.
