Welcome to our Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features shades of reds.
I almost made a card with the wine stamps we have, but I decided I felt more like coloring –
This is a new stamp set available in the upcoming 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! catalog called Free as a Bird. It’s so lovely. The sentiment is also from the same set.
I stamped the large image in Black Memento and let it dry. I colored the birds in a shades of Real Red and Cherry Cobbler Blends.
Copper was a nice color for the branch and shades of Old Olive, colored the leaves. I underlined the tree branch in Light Pool Party for a soften highlight. Blends has brought coloring back! I sure love them!
I trimmed the stamped image and used Vellum card stock to border it. It soften the Real Red, going well with the ‘shades of red’ theme.
