Bird on the Shore

Hello!  I never get bored with coloring this Repeat Impression stamp of a Great Blue Heron-one of the most beautiful birds.  He was perfect to use for the Inspiration Palette Challenge J1818 at The House That Stamps Built-I colored the image using all the colors in the palette (shown below).  After stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white CS, I colored with Copics G40, G82, BG000, BG10, B24, B26, E07, YR14. Sponged the sky with Memento Summer Sky ink.   I used a Caramel colored CS for the base and a mat of Blue to frame the bird.  Just for fun, I added some bits of Sea Glass for accents, inspired by the photo.  Will use sentiment inside card when I determine the occasion to send.  Decided to keep the front free of sentiments. 

Other Challenge to enter:
The Male Room: Challenge #90 Include an unexpected item.  Used Sea Glass as an accent. 
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
