(2011 Card #66) Blue Jay

Stamp from Greetings of the Season 2010 from Mark's Finest Papers.  OK, I know that is supposed to be a Cardinal, but I wanted a Stellar Blue Jay!  I stamped & heat embossed with black EP.   I "painted" with LuminArte powdered pigments & Perfect Pearl Powdered Pigments mixed with Gum Arabic.  Little dragon flies are from  Studio G Clear stamps.  I stitched around the perimeter with white thread.
