Happy Friday, everyone! The As You See It Challenge this week is decidedly bright! At first I was intimidated, but as I worked with the colors, I came to love them together! Check them out:
It wasn't my original plan to use Free as a Bird for my card, but I hadn't used it in a while, and it is so easy to color, I went for it! So here we go:
I also used the Global Design Project challenge to CASE the designer, who is Sarah Berry; here is her inspiration, and I used her sketch as my starting point:
I stamped the single bird, flower and greenery in Stazon Black, then watercolored them with ink and an aquapainter...my favorite coloring method! I added panels of Granny Apple Green and Pineapple Punch from some retired DSPs, a Blueberry Bushel diecut scallop and mounted them on a card that was embossed with the Pinewood Planks EF:
I mounted my bird on a rectangle diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die, after stamping some elements from A Big Thank You. Finally, I rounded the corners of the card with a corner punch. I just love these pretty, vibrant colors! Wouldn't this card cheer someone up?! I hope you'll play along with our challenge too....can't wait to see what you do with these colors! Share it with us over at As You See It!
