Great ink blending and water lifting Christine with that beautiful black embossed bird stamp and I love the holly and berries using water on the stamp to lift the outlines around the edge of the background, and that added metallic red on the flowers really pops. x

What a lovely stamp used here Christine - the ink blended background is so serene and the ink lifting accents the image so softly! Julia xx
