Christmas Bird

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!

Happy Colouring
