Audrie has such a beautiful and inspiring "Birds of a Feather" IC541 SCS Challenge this week over at SCS. The Pinterest site is filled with gorgeous birds. Here is My Robin Inspiration on Pinterest. Thank you Audrie for hosting and inspiring us again on your weekly challenge :-)
I already had my bird image from Dina Wakely Ranger "Scribbly Birds" stamp set stamped and colored with Zig Watercolor Markers and the sentiment from the set stamped. When I saw the robin image I immediately thought of this image and decided to make a little scene using my TCW "Butterfly Meadow Stencil". First I masked my bird and then sponged my blue background and sponged the edge for a frame. Then I layed just the grass image from the meadow and colored with 2 different green Zig Watercolor Markers. Then placed one of the smaller butterflies in the grass and colored with my Zig. I added clear Wink of Stella to the bird feathers and the butterfly. So pretty IRL.
Attached with dimensionals to the SU Whisper White Thick CS and done! So fun and easy. All one layer except for adding to an A2 card base.
My card is for several more challenges. Hope you get to find time to play in all or some of these inspiring challenges too :-)
