Rubbernecker New Release Preview - Day 1 Friend

Welcome friends to Day 1 of the Rubbernecker Previews! Several of the RN Design Team are highlighting some of the new stamps that Dave will be releasing on Tuesday 3/15.

This lovely stamp is one of three new birds on branches - this one is (obviously) Bird in Cherry Tree ! (#529-10). I inked the stamp with green and red ink, cut it with a petite oval nestie and sponged it before taking it out of the die. I added ice stickles to the cherries to add a little shimmer (which you can't really see the loveliness of in my pic :( unfortunately) and a small gem to the birds eye.

I ran my green ink over the narrow white silk ribbon so the buttons would resemble cherries with green stems (in an artistic sort of way LOL!!).

I got my sketch from Friday's Get Sketchy challenge (I turned it on it's side to accommodate my image!)

This is so pretty! Even before I read your description, I thought how clever it was to use the red buttons with green ribbon to mimic a row of cherries! :-)
