Free As A Bird for #PP586 & # GDP338

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by The Paper Players Colour Challenge #586 and the Sketch Challenge from Global Design Project #338.  Please click on their images to visit their blog post and enjoy the inspiration - then go make a card and express your creativity! :)

Assembly & Trix:

*  The Free As A Bird Stamp Set, #149468 is retiring, it's one of my fav's!

*  The ***Trix, with this card is to use your Stamparatus™ to create the mirror image.  Stamp directly on the Silicone Craft Sheet, #127853, lay the paper on top to pick up the image.  Then flip it over and stamp a second image so it looks like the birds are chatting.

*  Here near the Niagara Escarpment we watch migrating birds at this time of year, and my goal with the colouring was to create a 'House Finch' &  a 'Gold Finch'.  

*  The birds were coloured with  Stampin' Blends Markers in Daffodil Delight & Polished Pink, I coloured over the Polished Pink slightly with Gray Granite to soften the brightness a bit, the neutral from the challenge.

*  The Coastal Cabana was blended on with Blending Brushes.  A bit of Twine around the Polished Pink sentiment and we're done.  Fun Technique, Simple card :)
