As free as a bird (by Miranda)

Hi there,

Today it's my turn to show you what I have done with these new beautiful birds and birdcages........I've mainly used the 'Free as a bird' sheet but also used some of the birdcages of the ' a little bird told me'.

I have used a background made with fluid inks, like Ecoline on watercolor paper. 
I have stamped the 3 birds of the ' as free as a bird' sheet using green and purple Memento inks. Than I extend the branches by drawing with a black fineliner 0.1 mm. Than I stamped the birdcages using black ink. In the two corners I have stamped a fragment of the bird with flowers and leaves.
Than the fun started.....colouring with color pencils and some accents with a white marker.
The sentiment is from the ' a little bird told me' sheet.

Hope to have inspired you with this one and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Thanks for your visit and till next time,


  1. Heel bijzonder die achtergrond! Het zijn niet de kleuren, maar de vormen die me doen denken aan gemarmerd papier... Groetjes, Gerrina

  2. Hij is echt schitterend, niet te veel, precies goed. En die kleuren, magnifiek.

  3. Hello Miranda !
    Love the touches of white against the green!
    Wonderful colours too!

  6. Absolutely gorgeous. The colours are beautiful.

  7. Wow Miranda this is so beautiful and love the colours and fluidity of tbe background and the way the colours blend seamlessly together! The pencilwork is so pretty and I love the touches of white with the marker too. Who would ever think that a plain stamped image could end up looking like this! x

  8. Love this piece. Great colors, and I think I must get those birds of paradise.

  9. Wow Miranda this is fab, I love the way those colours just merge into one another and you have great movement in your piece too with the birds and their glorious tails
