Birds Eye View for #CC&S513

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by this super colour challenge from CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge - use Pear Pizzaz, Basic Gray & Blushing Bride.  Pear Pizzaz is one of my favourites and it has retired from the Stampin' UP!® Colour Collection, as has Blushing Bride, I was so happy to be able to feature these colours together for this challenge.  Hop on over to the #CC&S513 challenge using the hyperlink above and see what you can create, have fun!

***  The Trix  ***

** Cluster three images on the lower half of the card with a subtle shading of colour **

* Stamp the books from the Birds Eye View Stamp Set, #161436 on a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Basic White cardstock layer with Memento Black ink.

*  Use a Blender Pen to pick up colour from the stamp pads to colour in the books.  ***Trix, squeeze the stamp pad together to transfer a bit of ink onto the lid of the stamp pad.  Pick up the colour from the lid to create subtle shading and colour variation.

*  Stamp the sweet little bird with Memento Black ink on a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock and cut out with scissors.

*  Colour the bird with Sponge Daubers, #133773 to had a hint of colour to the bird.

***Trix, double stack the dimensionals and adhere the bird in front of the stack of books to create perspective.  

*  Stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings Stamp Set, #158763 with Memento Black Ink for the third image in the cluster.  Then adhere to cardstock layer to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Basic White card base.
