C4C90, Birds On A Wire!

I made this for the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog C4C90, it's an inspiration challenge! This is the inspiration piece below!

Okay I have to tell ya, I love the way this turned out, and it was fast & easy!

I started with a piece of glossy white cardstock and sponged the colours across starting from the bottom and going up,
pacific point
tempting turquoise
old olive (wasn't thrilled with that)
certainly celery (too light)
gable green (much better)
pumpkin pie

daffodil delightThe branch is from the SU Stem Silhouette set, stamped in basic black.

The sentiment is also from this set.

The birds were made with the Martha Stewart Bird on Wire punch.

I somehow managed to get a couple finger prints on the glossy white that the ink wouldn't cover and a couple smudges of darker in on the yellow part! The individual birds are covering the finger print, and the tab at the top is covering the smudge!

I think it worked out perfectly and balances the card out! Gotta love that!

I finished it off with a couple micro brads, and some white dots made with a Sharpie poster paint marker (a must have tool)!

Have a Great Day!
