Because it has a Song

'A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer,
It sings because it has a song'
-  Maya Angelo -

The beautiful and well known sentiment on this stamp by Fiskars has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and fussy cut/ hand cut out using scissors.

This has been popped up onto negative Die cuts from Seth Apter of the Altered Page's Spellbinders Collection
