The Play Date Cafe Challenge #76 is this gorgeous color challenge. I couldn't resist combining it with the Card Positioning System's Sketch Challenge #12 to create this card using the Sophia Workshop on the Go and Party Pennants stamp sets with Pacifica, Sky, and Pear inks. I just love this cheerful bird stamp!
To stamp the bird, first ink up the body in the lightest color of ink (Sky). Do not ink up the legs (yet). Then, roll the top of the bird in the darker ink (Pacifica). For the beak, wipe ink off with your finger and then ink up in Sunny Yellow. Finally, ink up the legs (again in Sunny Yell0w), huff (breathe) on the stamp (to remoisten the inks), and then stamp onto the card base. Finish the bird with a Sparkle (self-adhesive gem) for the eye.
Next, stamp the vines in Pear, then fill in a few flowers with Sky ink. Finally, use buttons and sparkles to embellish the floral scene.
Wishing you a bit of happiness!
