When I was choosing my projects for Caseing the Catty this week, I couldn’t decide on just one project! There are so many lovely cards to case in the Year of Cheer section, pages 36-47.
I have recently purchased a few of the colouring stamp sets as Stampin’ Up! is re-introducing Stampin’ Blends markers. Demonstrators have been allowed to purchase these markers early and test them out. I’m still waiting for mine to arrive but I have been wanting to use the Cheery Chirps set so I dug out my aqua painter to colour it.
This is the card I cased, on page 41 of the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.
I’ve done my card very similar to the original. I did a watercolour wash in Pool Party on the background with watercolour paper. I then coloured with the aqua painter using Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry.
I stamped the large sentiment from Merry Patterns using the outline stamp first in Memento black ink and then the solid stamp in Old Olive.
I wanted to play with one of the other birds from the set as well. I coloured it in a similar manner but I added Wink of Stella over the top. I also used the Black Vintage trim which is so lovely.
You can still earn the Merry Patterns stamp set for free this month. Just host a workshop or place an order of $450. Contact me to arrange a date!
