Here, Birdie.

Hello dear friends and readers,

First day of Spring, and I do not believe this weather does justice. I am sure we are all ready for some nice warm weather to enjoy the outdoors and have some fresh air throughout the house. I know all the creatures out there are ready for it too.

Birds are coming already and I can hear them in the morning and see them busy at work getting ready for their matting season. I love the birds. Can you tell?

For the DoStamper Stars 274 I could not help but select birds for the card. The images are from Best Birds which has a matching framelits, got love that. This is a simple to make card, just take a few steps. The background was sponged using So Saffron, Soft Suede, and Bermuda Bay. I kept it light, because I just did not want a complete white background. The bird was stamped, colored, then cut. I used some Prismacolor pencils color it, since I did not want to water color. The small flowers are also part of the set and those I colored the center of them using our Watercolor Pencil and used a wet brush to give the color it full value and to spread around a bit. I love how they turned out. If you like to color images that you will cut out, I strongly suggest that you color first, then cut. You will have some surface to hold on to and that will make coloring a breeze.

Thank you for visiting today. Be well
