Today I have another card for you. This card is a bit more labor intensive because it involves coloring. I offered the stampers at the class the opportunity to use a variety of coloring options, including watercolor crayons and watercolor pencils. One lady even chose to leave the bird in black and white.
Some folks aren't into birds, but I really like this image. Wish I could remember the name of the bird. One of my stampers knows her birds and she immediately named it - as I recall it began with "English". She said we have lots of them in this area. Maybe if she looks at this post, she can add a comment to tell us the rest of the official name. Unlike yesterday's card, this card made good use of my Big Shot: Finishing Touches Edgelits (lacy Old Olive edge), Labels Collection framelits (Cherry Cobbler frame around the bird), Designer Frames (the impressed dotted oval on the label), and Petals a Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing folder (the Cherry Cobbler strip on the side). This card was tweaked from a similar card by Fran Kennedy.
Have you looked at my Stampin' Up! blog (peggyouten.stampinup.net) to see the Perfectly Penned stamps that are available individually for a short time only? This is such a nice option to be able to buy just the one greeting you prefer from a set.
