Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge #2

Hello!  I'm super excited about this week's challenge for the Outlines DT. Our mission, should we choose to accept (hee, hee) is to create a Valentine's Day and use the pearl pens by Viva Decor (available in the Outlines Rubber Stamp store).

Happy Day

I had a BLAST stamping this sweet Songbird!  I colored the bird with copic markers and added a few blasts of the airbrush to give the background some sky.  Then, I used the Red and White Ice pearl pens to dot around the image and layers.  The hearts are all colored in with the pearl pens too.

Viva Decor Pearl Pens were a new item to me.  I've used other similar pearl paints in the past and have had varied success with them.  The consistency of the Viva Decor Pearl Pens are just luscious!  I found them really easy to use because of the long "pen-like" bottle.  The bottle makes it SO easy to hold it still for delicate application.  I know I'll be purchasing more colors to add to my collection!

Be sure to visit my fellow team members for more inspiration today!
