Inventory Reduction Challenge #57 - Something with Wings

Our challenge theme this week is Something With Wings.  I had thought of an airplane, butterfly, and Beautiful Tilda.  She has very large wings in that stamp.

I finished up this fairly clean and simple card last night.  So if you were looking for a complicated scene with stand up figures and big floral bouquets which I love doing, you will be disappointed -- I'm sorry.

I've had this gorgeous Cornish Heritage Farms bluebird stamp for about 3 years.  I inked it up and stamped out several images but never colored them up.  After taking Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Copic coloring classes, I have learned how to blend and shade colors.  The color blending is precisely what this image needs.
Here is the card -

It's a regular size card, not the 6"  large ones I make with the Maggies.

The card base is SU River Rock cardstock.
The background is light green from Scrapblocks Layers papers.  The design is Cuttlebug Floral Screen.

The bluebird is stamped on Whisper White and River Rock is the scalloped frame.  I put Liquid Pearls drops on each scallop.  I really need to practice that technique!  Behind the bird is from SU Herbal Expressions and is stamped with Always Artichoke.  The ribbon and bow are from my stash.

The Copics used are B21, 23, 24, YR00, 01, 02 for the bird.  The branch - W0, 2, 3.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking some time to look at my latest creation!  Be sure to stop on by my team mates' blogs to see what they have chosen with wings!


By the way - have you heard that Cornish Heritage Farms will be having a Grand Re-Opening November 19?  They will have digi stamps and are offering a free one for just a few days at  I can't seem to get the link to work, but copy/paste the link and it should work.

Really pretty Kathy - I am an avid bird watcher and am constantly feeding the birds. You might say "I am for the birds!"
