I"m excited that I got the chance to play along with the Papertrey Ink Blog hop this month! I always want to, and try, but it seems like I end up waiting until the last minute and then don't have enough time to get something done.
This month they had this beautiful inspiration photo to get you started. I took many things from this photo. I used the colors, the quatrefoil pattern and the blended look too!
I first cut out the Quatrefoil cutting plate then used it as a stencil to sponged a little distress ink on a watercolor paper panel. I started with Picked Raspberry at the bottom, Shaded Lilac in the middle, and Peacock Feathers at the top. The bird, the flowers, and the leafy branch were cut out using the Songbird dies from some paper that I had previously sponged with those same colors and spritzed with water. The leaves I glued down flat to my watercolor panel, the birds and flowers I used foam tape. I added Doodlebug Sprinkles to the center of the flowers and scattered a couple of random ones around. I mounted the whole watercolor panel to an A2 card base.
