Spruced Up

With Tic Tac Toe
Inspiration comes from Tic Tac Toe Color Dare #377.
I used the bottom row with Mink for the base,
 New England Ivy and Mink prints with a Sangria 
colored bird. The bird is colored using the 
reverse masking technique.

Reverse Masking
Masking is when you mask an image (the bird) and stamp around it with the branches.
Reverse masking is masking the surrounding area of an image to color the image.
To make a reverse mask stamp the image (birds) on some glossy cardstock. Cut out the image of the bird. Lay the cut out over the bird and color it with your ink pad and a sponge.
