I often customize stamps to be what I’d like to see – and this Songbird stamp set has been on my desk for quite a while, knowing I’d make a bunch of birds out of the one stamp!

For those familiar with Copics, figuring out colors shouldn’t be all that hard….especially if you’ve taken Copic Jumpstart and learned about Glazing! You can turn any of your markers into the right colors for any type of bird. The tough part is the markings.

Google the bird you want to draw, and you’ll get tons of images – then start scrolling to find a bird in an approximately correct position so you can see all the markings clearly.

Some birds will have a longer tail, different shaped beak, etc – you can mask off those portions when stamping, or do as I did and just draw right over those parts!
