Birds of a Feather

I have my weekly post for Artistic Outpost today and I am showcasing the fabulous Birds of a Feather stamp set.
I began by colouring the background with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue and Yellow Green Light, blending with a babywipe.
I then added three circles using the top from one of my DecoArt Media products, applying Carbon Black Fluid Acrylic to the edges of the lid and then pressing the lid onto my background. Once the black paint was dry I then painted each of the circles with Titanium White Fluid Acrylic, this makes the colours applied on top really pop.
I then coloured each of the circles with Gelatos, adding black Gelato around the edges of the circles for definition. I then stamped the focal image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set along with the sentiment from the same set, stamping both with Black Archival Ink.
Touches of stencilling have been added using DecoArt Modelling Paste and the Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil. I love the black of the focal image against the vibrant colour palette.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
