How to Make
Stamp the Dovecraft Bohemian clear bird stamp
onto a piece of A4 card. The rose was coloured with shades of the pink including
the sorbet (43), candy (44) and skin tone porcelain (07) markers. I then
highlighted the petals using the crimson (15) and cool grey (02) markers.
Tip: Use a small circular motion when colouring to give you
streak free colouring.
The pistachio (25) twin marker was perfect for
colouring the stems around the bird. To create shading around the steams, I
used the grass (27) twin marker. I also used these markers along with the
pine marker (30) for the larger leaves. I then added various shades of yellow
for the smaller blooms including the primrose (37), warm yellow (40) and lemon
Colour in the bird using the sky (20), dusky
purple (31) and porcelain (07) twin markers, use the blender marker to create a
realistic detail to the bird stamp. To shade the bird stamp, use the cool grey
(02) marker to colour the outlines of the feathers and head, this will create

Tip: Use a lighter shade marker pen to help blend shades
together while the ink is still wet to give effortless blending.
To add a contrast in colours, I coloured the bud
using the purples twin marker pack. I coloured the tip using the lilac (33)
marker and added graduation with the lavender (32) marker. To finish, I used
the amethyst marker to create a more realistic flower.
Tip: Store your marker pens flat so the colour doesn’t
settle at one end and dry the pens out.
