Tweet tweet

The ongoing Chocolate Baroque colour challenge asks for blue, purple, orange and yellow. I made this ATC using the CB Steampunk birds set. Besides the CB challenge I am posting this ATC for the Country view challenge (anything goes).

The background has been made by dipping the ATC in Seedless Preserves ink that I had diluted on an acrylic block. I wanted some extra detail there, so I used a spring stamp with crocuses on a text background and stamped some handwriting around the edges of the card. The bird is mounted on low foam tape. She (or he?) has been stamped on a variety of underpapers in the challenge colours and pieced together. I added some stamping and embossing on the wing because even though it was from a different sheet of underpaper, it was too close to the colour of the body. I used a white sharpie pen to add some detail in the eye and stitches.

Cheers for spring and the "tweet tweet" I am at this moment hearing from outside, though none of our birds are this colourful :)

  3. Very beautiful ATC, I love how you used the paper piecing technique on the bird. I guess we don't know if it's a male or female bird, but I love what you've done with it! Thanks for joining us at Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge, Shirleyxx
