Bird's Nest Color Throwdown

Hi there. Here's another card that only took me 20 minutes to make and 3 days to upload thanks to an aggravating migraine started by some nasty perfume someone at work just had to wear. Ugh!

This is my entry for the Color Throwdown #85, and the last one for a while according to the CTD blog. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do all of the challenges, but I did have fun with them.

The image is stamped in memento tuxedo black and colored with Prismacolor watercolor pencils and a blender marker. Afterwards, I lightly stippled Stampin Up! bashful blue dye ink around the bird and nest to fill in the remaining white spots before stamping an old retired script background stamp and then adding some glittered silk flowers.

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo, Stampin Up!
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin Up! Bashful Blue, Garden Green
Cardstock: White, Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils, Prismacolor Blender Marker, Bling, Silk Flowers, Glue Dots, Stipple Brush, Baby Brads

  1. Hi! This is a great card! I love that little bird! This wasn't the last Color Throwdown, just the last one for Cathy for a little while. She's taking a break. We'll be back every week! Thanks for playing along in the Throwdown!
