This is a regular sized ATC - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".  I started with Ranger's new Specialty Stamping Paper and stamped the girl (Stampland) onto it using Archival Ink coffee.  It was amazing how well this photo image stamp stamped onto the paper.  It used to be that to get a really crisp image when using photo image rubber stamps you needed to stamp onto glossy paper but this paper worked marvelously!!!  Dried the ink with my heat tool... ink does stay wet longer on this paper!!  Stamped the leaves (Posh Impressions) with Adirondack ink clover stamping twice sometimes for a lighter image.  Colored the lips and eyelids with Distress Ink (broken china, barn door) using Ranger's Inkssential pen nibs.  Added Distress Ink shabby shutters around the edges with a blending tool and then Archival coffee to the very edges.  The bird is cut (Tim's movers and shapers bird) from grungepaper, inked it with Adirondack snow cap, dried it, added color with Distress Inks (broken china, vintage photo, wild honey) and used a black pen for the eye.  The "twig" is made by twisting Tim's Ideology tissue tape and painting it brown with espresso Paint Dabber, let it dry.  Attached the bunched up green lace and "twig" to the bottom with Tim's Tiny Attacher.  The bird has a piece of foam tape under it for heighth.  "Whispers" was computer generated, cut out, inked with Shabby Shutters.
