Growing in Unity Day 3 and The Color Throwdown

Hello!
It is Day 3 of Growing in Unity with Unity Stamp Co. AND it is Wednesday and time for another color palette from The Color Throwdown!  


This week's Color Throwdown palette is soooo vivid!


This card was just plain fun to make.  I really love my florals, but I do have a thing for birds as well!
I started with the bird from the April '17 Be My Bird KOTM.  I am excited to say that he is colored using the no-line coloring technique!  Copics have been the death of me with this technique!  Once he was colored, I added details with Prismacolor pencils then fussy cut him out.
The floral background stamp is from this same KOTM.  I stamped it in yellow 3 times on the card front, creating that artistic triangle of elements.  Once the background was done, I stamped the bird and branch in light brown.  I added shading to the branches with a dark brown Prismacolor pencil.  I also stamped bits of branches over the other floral images.  Lastly, I glued the bird over the image already stamped on the card front.
The sentiment is from the Finally Here stamp set.  I heat embossed it in gold on vellum and wrapped it around the card front.  Sequins and a strip of patterned paper finish off this card.

Don't forget to comment for your chance to win 25 stamps from Unity Stamp Co.!  Comment each day for 5 chances to win!

  6. Oh Lee Ann, this is fabulous. I love those colors and you so masterfully used them on your card. Love that sentiment and the little bird. Isn't it wonderful when the little ones are loved and anxiously awaited for? Prayers for those little ones who aren't loved and whose Mom's choose to end their lives.
