Hello! Today, I'm playing along with the Colour INKpiration Challenge crew. This challenge used the color combo, Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White. I won this Bird Banter Stamp Set at the November OnStage and hadn't yet had the opportunity to use I it. When I saw this challenge yesterday, I grabbed this off the shelf and set to work designing a card.
I love the updated classic look of Night of Navy and the bright Lemon Lime Twist. I'm not sure I've ever used this color combo before, but I'm going to have to be sure to use it again.
When coloring the bird, I tried a few different techniques and materials. First I used the Blends, then Watercolor Pencils, but settled on 'painting' him using my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush dipped into ink that I had smooshed into the lids of my Stampin' Ink Pads.
While it has several layers, this card was quick to put together. Let's take a look at the cutting instructions in Today's Tutorial.
