I decided to go with the color blue, these birds were just asking to be inked up :-)
The stamp is Penny Black's Sweetest Sound, inked with Distress markers spritzed with water and stamped on Bristol Vellum paper using my Tonic stamp platform. I stencilled the background using Tim Holtz' Concerto stencil and distress ink. The border was inked with black memento ink (I simply wiped the inkpad over the edges). Heat embossed the sentiment (old and retired from Whimsy Stamps) using Versafine Onyx ink and clear embossing powder. Framed with white card stock and then used a retired Stampin Up blue color as a card base.
