I really love these C.C. Designs birds.  They are cute and fun to colour.  Speaking of colour, this card definitely went outside of my earthtone comfort zone.  Sage, pink, and other pastel shades topped off with just a bit of chocolate chip.  I even used some glitter on my lovebirds!  I’m not much of a bling fiend and glitter just plain scares me (the mess!) but it worked on this card and I managed to keep it to a minimum.

The birds were stamped on watercolour paper and coloured using SU! classic inks and a watercolour brush.  I’m not good at tying bows so I tend to avoid ribbon.  When I do use it I have some unusual ways of creating a bow.  I’m such a cheater!  This card was for an anniversary, in case you were wondering.
