Simplicity Sunday - The Merry Magpie by Sue

Good afternoon and a very happy Sunday, it's Sue here with my quick, simple, and ever so slightly blingy piece.

I love to create my backgrounds with paint and a brayer, and for every days background pieces you also have a mop-up sheet where you clean up your brayer.  This is one of those sheets, I've just chopped it down to size and brayered a border.
I fixed the Merry Magpie to my stamping platform along with the sentiment from the same set. I always like to use this when I'm stamping over lots of paint so that I can re-stamp if I need to, then I embossed with jet black embossing powder.
I stitched it all into my black album, and as all magpie's like a bit of the shiny, I added a few (lots) of sequins.
I hope you like him, and thanks very much for looking xx
