I played around for a bit to work out the best position for the stamp and stencil to get the best out of them both. Then it was just a case of filling in the stencil with the stamped design.
I didn't want the border so I covered it up with Post-its when I inked up the stamp. Just make sure that you remove them before you stamp!
Post-it masks cover the little magpies so that I could apply the Distress Ink to colour the large one. I used the same colours to edge it too.
The inside part of the stencil comes in handy to cover the large magpie when applying some ink around the edge for a shadow.
The background is stamped with the Small Sprig which matches the Magpie Montage perfectly.
A small bow, some music and a verse finish it off nicely.
