SU-Only and Color Throwdown. Last night I searched through the current Stampin' Up! catalog to find some inspiration and decided I would use the Best Birds for the challenge. The design is from a card I cased on page 52 of the Stampin' Up! catalog. All images and sentiment came from the Best Birds stamp set and I used the coordinating Birds & Blooms Thinlit Dies. Watercolor paper was used for the images and background. After heat embossing the background with clear embossing powder I used Aqua Painters and the Dapper Denim ink pad for color. The bird was watercolored with three shades of yellow: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Delightful Dijon. Real Red was used for the flowers, Wild Wasabi for the leaves and Crumb Cake for the branch. To anchor the focal area a 1.25" of Dapper Denim cardstock was embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder and Craft ink applied for highlights. That's pretty much it!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
