Happy Monday evening! I have a fun card for the color challenge this week at Splitcoaststampers. I love the bright fun colors Barbara gave us.
I've been wanting to use this bird for quite some time and I'm glad I
got a chance to this week. These colors really work well as watercolor.
The Shaded Spruce became very blue when combined with mostly water in
the background. And the Berry Burst could easily be tamed down to a
light pink with more water.
I dug up this old DSP; it took me awhile. I had small samples in a notebook I keep of patterned paper. But trying to find the actual paper was a whole other adventure!
I used my label maker for the sentiment. A few years ago I realized that using black tape in my label maker mimics white embossing but is cleaner and faster. A bit more restrictive in what can be done, but worth the trade off.
I also entered this in the Triple B - Birds, Butterflies & Blooms Challenge.
