Summer Berries

Hello Everyone!  Today Power Poppy has another sneak peek for you called Summer Berries!  This set has three images and an array of fabby sentiments!

I started by stamping the image from Summer Berries onto X-press It Blending Card and colouring it with Copics and pencils.  I was trying for something a little different - I think I over thought the bird!  Birds are a challenge for me, so I googled an Australian Red-Browed Finch as inspiration.  I thought it would be interesting with it's red face and green wings......I think I need more work!  In going with my 'let's try something different idea' - I've taken a stencil and blending brush and used Scattered Straw ink to create a bit of a background.  I don't know......what do you think??

I've created the rest of the card with a red base, layer of brown, some Maja Designs paper and die cut the curve of the front with a border die.  I've created the top by cutting some brown card with Scalloped Rectangles die and trimmed to size and topped with a red ribbon.  Finally I've stamped the sentiment from Summer Berries added some enamel dots.

Stamps - Summer Berries (Power Poppy)

I think you did an excellent job on your bird, and card. I like your background and especially love the elegant design of your card. Gonna add that to my sketch book.

Kathy I think its very pretty. The sponged design behind is great touch and that bird is very cool. Pretty girlie.

I love your bird! Honestly, Kathy, I'm bird challenged, too. I want a redo on mine! It's nice that this is sort of an "everybird" and can be colored lots of different ways. I think your coloring of this stamp is outstanding and I love the stenciling!

I think it looks fabulous! The stenciled area was the first thing I noticed and then my eye went right to the beautiful image!

I love your different take on this bird and how it looks on your design. It was the one that sold me on this stamp.
