Today's challenge on Heart to Heart Challenges blog is perfect for the feeling of melting snow. It is a color challenge using Amethyst (light purple) and Crystal Blue (med. clear blue). Here is my card:
I used A Tweet (A1104) stamp set for the bird and branches. Then for the musical notes background I used Universal Background (D1477). Inked it up in both Amethyst and Crystal blue before stamping on the white cardstock. I matted the bird in both colors of cardstock and then adhered to the front using 3-D tape to raise it up. The sentiment "A Note for you" is from the new stamp set that will be available next month. Last I added both colors of Waxy Flax along the side.
Here is a close-up of the bird.
I inked the solid bird stamp using Chocolate ink by rolling it around the edges. Then I used my Waterbrush to fill in the bird with Crystal Blue ink and Amethyst. It is hard to get a good picture of it, I like how it looks like a watercolor painting. Then I added a copper bitty brad for the eye.
Thanks for looking - and I hope that you enjoy your day!
