This post is also at Magenta today. You can see that here.
When I saw the new Magenta stamp with the Sandpiper and his reflection, I thought he looked like he thought his reflection was a friend there in the water.
After die-cutting the panel with the Dainty Dashes Stackers frame from Penny Black, I lightly added some Distress ink using the ink that was already on my brushes. I feel pretty sure looking at the brushes that it was Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers. I blended the colors through the stencil TM286.
I stamped the image using Versafine Clair Acorn ink. Since it is a pigment ink I was able to sprinkle gold embossing powder on the reflection part of the image. I colored the bird's belly with colored pencils. I'm pretty sure there are no sandpipers with blue coloring, but I liked how it looked. At the end, I stamped the sentiment and embossed with gold and matted the panel and added it to a base card.
