This is the first time I've used the mosaic background stamp. I thought its craggy look made a great rocky mountain background for the soaring birds . . .
After stamping the mosaic twice, I colored the second image, fussy-cutting out the individual shapes and pop-dotting them over the original for added texture. Then, a little sparkle on the leading edges of the birds' wings as they climb toward the heavens, and we're done.
