Less Is More Challenge 139/2

Hi legionnaires. I mentioned I'd have another
go at the LIM challenge for "off the edge". Once again, I've used a new stamp set from TPC Studio, called Vintage Bird Cages. There are three cages and two sentiments in the set, plus two birds. I've never seen such a pretty in flight bird. It lent itself to some delicate coloring which I did with pencils and a blending pen on the thrice stamped bird. And isn't E. Dickenson's sentiment beautiful? (Note to self...try to find a book of her poems...).The base is a Papertrey white cs...nice and thick. I used Memento Paris Dusk ink. I felt black was just too stark.

This also will be submitted to Simply Create here where the challenge is #39, Just a Little Monochromatic.

Well, I've gone and stayed up into the wee hours, and though I have a nice lazy day coming up, my hubby doesn't pay that any attention. My roomis an absolute mess, so I think I'll be cleaning it up a bit.

Hugs & Blessings,
