AYSI214 Colorful Bird


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:

Image may contain: bird

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 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!
