Stamp the bird rubber stamp with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink on watercolor paper. Let the ink dry for a few minutes. Watercolor the stamped bird with our Artisan Inks and let the ink dry for about 15 minutes. With a water color brush wash color all around the stamped bird to create a beautiful washy background. Let the ink dry for about an hour. Layer the stencil on top of the watercolor background underneath the stamped bird. With a sponge or stiff stencil brush pick up some ink and stencil the words on top of the background. Chris made this Bird Card with our newest Fly Little Bird Fly stencil and one of our best selling bird rubber stamps - Sandi and Calli.
