I had fun playing with my new Birds and Blooms Cling Stamp Set. In addition, I used Prismacolor Pencils and watercoloring for my mediums.
I love, love, love birds and this sweet, fluffy bird is just the cutest! I was so excited to see these sets released last month. So, I started with the bird- stamped, colored with Prismacolors and die cut him out. Then I stamped the branches and colored them with watercolors followed by Prismacolors and die cut them out.
Next, I stamped the flowers and colored them-then I realized I did not buy the dies for the flowers. Epic fail! So, I fussy cut all of the flowers out.
My watercolored background is actually a redo as the first one was a total dud, imo! I have been using both Kuretake watercolors and Peerless watercolors lately, and to be honest, I cannot remember which I used here. I have used mixed media paper as I find I have better success with that versus watercolor paper.
I used the sketch from Cardabilities~
But then I added the branch to the top right hand corner as I felt the card needed balance. Not sure if this counts anymore, LOL!
I tucked a doily under the sentiment banner, added Simon Says Stamp Sequins and scrunched some seam binding for a bow.
