See the birdie…

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments there is a new color splash challenge.  The colors are fresh and crisp – Real Red, Pear Pizzaz, Pacific Point and Early Espresso with either Whisper White or Very Vanilla.  For my card I was inspired by Ashley C. Newell’s Thinking of You card featured in the book ‘ A Card a Day’.  I created my own printed paper by stamping the flourish from the Baroque Motifs on the Pear Pizzaz and on the Whisper White.  I then punched the Pearl Pizzaz with the 1/3/4″ circle punch and I punched the Whisper White wing with the Two-Step Bird punch. The bird image is also punched with the Two-Step Bird punch from the Early Espresso.  I wanted the bird image to be subtle so I used the Early Espresso then layered the circles and white branch behind it so you could just see the silhouette of the bird.  I cut the white branch free hand with paper snips.
