BC151 - Colorful Bird

Happy Friday!  Check HERE for the Annabelle Challenge (Say it with White)

Wow this weeks Blogger Challenge is a color challenge and boy is it a "bright" one. How do the colors, Red, Teal and Curry sound!  I picked out my colors from SU and boy oh boy they looked bright together.  Since I had no paper that matched those colors I went down to the LSS and picked out paper that I felt would go with those colors.  The pattern I picked is, (Love Me Do - My Mind's Eye). 
Next up I chose my image, (Sketched Birds - Hero Arts).  I stamped the Sanded BG (SU) on Whisper White cs and then colored my bird with markers (Real Red, Taken With Teal) and stamped it on top of the sanded background.  I added 3 yellow jewels.
My card base is Real Red layered with Crushed Curry and a punched piece of Taken With Teal.  The punch is (Quilted - MS).  I also punched out some Teal hearts and stamped the sentiment (Sincere Salutations-SU) with Real Red ink and tied a Red ribbon (JoAnn's) around the punched piece.  Even though these are pretty bright colors I like how this card turned out.

Your card is gorgeous, Ida...so beautifully created with all the birds and hearts. A great layout and your use of the colors is excellent. Digital art is created solely with your computer, no stamps involved, no pre-stamped art (as some are selling now for you to color). You have to learn to work in a digital art program. I use Corel's Paint Shop Pro X3, some use Photo Shop. I graduated from a digital art program in 2009.
Hugs, Gayle (in Canada)
