Flying Home

Today's post seems very appropriate.  The stamp set is named Flying Home and my daughter will be flying home today after being away for twelve days. 
This card was made for the February 27 color challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  The colors are Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry and Garden Green. A beautiful combination.

The main image is watercolored in the ink colors (I did add some Smoky Slate on the bird house).  I wasn't doing heavy water coverage so I used the Shimmer White cardstock, a coated cardstock.  It won't hold up to heavy watercolor but does fine with a light touch.  Because ths image is fairly delicate and has lots of small detail I used a blender pen rather than an aqua painter or brush.
For the bottom panel I created the patterned paper by randomly stamping the birds and some foliage (from Bird Banter) in Rich Razzleberry ink on the same color cardstock.  I finished it off with punched leaves and some glitter enamel dots.  The main image is popped off the card using three circles cut from Garden Green cardstock.

  1. Such pretty colors!!! I haven't been able to use this stamp yet without that stitched circle framelit. It's like they are attached at the hip. Your whole card is so well designed.
