CDS Weekend Color Challenge


Clear Dollar Stamps has a weekend color challenge over at Paper Craft Planet - this weekend's colors are dark brown, rust or dark orange, blue , Kraft and very vanilla. I used the sets What a Hoot and Song Bird Silhouettes. I stamped the branch in chocolate chip and the leaves in kiwi kiss. The bird was stamped on the branch in dusty durango then stamped again on scrap, cut out, and popped up. I cut the rectangle out with a nestabilitie and embossed. Then before removing the brass template I sponged on some bashful blue ink. Love the layered effect it provides without actually adding one. Other colors of cardstock include Kraft, Chocolate chip, Dusty durango and a scrap piece of Granola DSP by Basic Grey. Now, if I may, I have to point out the crocheted flower --- I DID THAT ALL BY MYSELF!!!!! Yep, I sat in front of the computer learning how to crochet and make this thing!!! Practice will definitely help, but it sure is fun when it's all done! I added the vintage button from PaperTrey Ink and some hemp to the center. Gotta say, I'm proud of that darn thing!!
