DPguestbadge2013Happy Sunday! Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring the challenge at – 613 Avenue Create (Challenge #64 – Theme: Birds, feathers, wings) and since this is my last month as a Guest Designer, I wanted to play along…

For my card, I used one of the new digi sets from the March release – Tweet Birdhouses

Today I went with a WATERCOLOR look! First I printed the sentiment onto watercolor paper – I literally waited for the page to come out of the printer and immediately put some clear embossing powder onto it. Heat embossing worked!! I water colored the background paper with Inktense Pencils (Iris Blue and Antique White). With my aqua pen, I pick the colors off the pencils and swirled it onto the watercolor paper trying to make it look like clouds.

Then I water colored the birdhouse with a variety of pencils, (somewhat random as I wanted it to look weathered). I fussy cut it and tied it onto some “branches” (Stampin’ Up Bird Builder Punch) so it would look like it was hanging from a tree.  I mounted it onto a True Black cardstock base (PTI) and VOILA!

I haven’t tried this technique like this before but I really like the outcome! It’s Clean and Simple and Subtle. What do you think?

Now slide over to 613 Avenue Create and join in the fun! AND AS ALWAYS…Thanks for stopping by!
