Working online without my reading glasses is a basic mistake, but this takes the cake. I posted the wrong photo for Marj's Magenta bird cork shapes colored with Copic markers! Here's the correct pic . . .

Paper and word stamp by Magenta (07.514G); chocolate Brilliance ink;
Magenta cork stickers; velvet paper from SEI; coloring with Copic markers;
pen strokes using glitter pens.

The Copic markers blend really well, the pen colors are 'forgiving', dry fast and she was able to make the twig part brown, and mixed browns on the birds and mixed greens on the leaves. One special hint from Helene Metivier with Magenta that Marge recommends:  cut out the individual cork image(s) you want, color, and then peel off carefully so you do not tear the cork. The cork bird sheets are at Art 'n Soul, as well as the papers.

While I'm here, let me show you her other Valentine-inspired creations . . .

Showing you the inside of the card so you can see how
the coloring below the card front trim was made
