I started by searching for a bird stamp in my stash, as I find bird song most uplifting on spring and summer days. I finally located one of the right size and detail in a set by Stamperia's Cosmos Stamps. I stamped it in Versamark ink on a top-folded ivory card base and heat embossed with a coppery embossing powder. Next, I used musical notes and a quotation from a Honey Bee stamp set, stamped in black ink:
- Stamps: Stamperia Cosmos Stamps "Cosmos Bird" (WTKCCR02) and Honey Bee "Music Speaks" (HBST-178)
- Inks: Versamark; GinaK Amalgam "Jet Black"
- Embossing Powders: Lindy's Gang "Midnight Copper"
- Papers: ParkLane Paperie A2 notecard "ivory" (15919590)
