Color Challenge 206

I'm SO excited...I just got my first order of new stuff from Stampin' Up! I've got some delicious new treats...isn't that so fun!? I know a lot of you already have a bundle of the new fun, so I'm happy to have finally gotten them!

I decided to start my new catalog fun with one of my FAVORITE new sets! Cheep Talk is such a fun new set! I love the bold images...and I {heart} the birds! The branch of this one is also really wonderful! I decided to try my hand at the color challenge from SCS last week, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, and More Mustard. I started the fun by stamping the branch in Kiwi Kiss ink on WW paper. I then inked the little birdie in Rose Red and placed on the branch. I used my versamarker(another of my FAVORITE things!) to color in the body and tail of the bird, and then sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. I took the sentiment "thanks so much" from the Trendy Trees stamp set...another one I LOVE! I stamped it with Rose Red in, punched it out with my loarge oval punch and then mounted it on a Rose Red 1" circle that I punched out. I layered those two pieces to a Die Cut Blooms Again Kiwi flower. I mounted my main image on more mustard and then again on Rose Red. My card is More Mustard and covered with a layer of Kiwi Kiss designer paper and then my birdie layer. I mounted my sentiment flower onto the card with dimensionals. The last detail on this birdie was a couple of Flower Fusion felt flowers with mustard brads.

We're getting ready for my parents to arrive tomorrow morning! They are so great, they wanted to "sneak" one more trip in before we move home! We are all SO excited! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!!
