Penny Black Plays with Designed to Color

 The Penny Black Stamp Squad is playing along this week at the Designed to Color blog.  Every day this week a Penny Black Stamp Squad member will be featured on the Penny Black blog.  Today is my day!  
Copics used:  Head and snowflakes on breast BG72; Legs:  E35; Leaves G11 and G05; Body and tail E84, E11 and YG03; Wing and breast E02, E11, E93, R01 and R02; Beak YR27
I've chosen an image from Penny Black's T for Transparent set Christmas Harmony.  I stamped the image with black VersaFine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then had fun choosing Copic marker colors to give the bird a "tapestry" look.  I cut the scalloped circle using a Nestie die and mounted it on patterned paper that had been run through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Couldn't stop there ... had to add the ribbon and bow for a really festive Christmas look.
Hope you will take the time to check out the Designed to Color blog here.  There are examples of amazing coloring by their Design Team.  And of course, I hope you will follow the Penny Black blog all week to see what the Stamp Squad has done.
