Treats on Tuesday at Magenta - Goldfinch

Hi Everyone, I'm over at Magenta with a goldfinch on a  leaf press background. I hope you head over and check out how I made this card and also find out how to use a bullet tip pen to edge the card. I used a gold pen to edge the main panel, it's hard to see but looks great IRL.

Stamps and Stencils used-

Watchful Goldfinch

Beautifully colored image on your imaginative background! No idea how you color so well over a gelli print. It’s often hard over paint but you managed perfectly! Love this!
