More Watercolored Birds
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  If you remember in my last post, I went a little crazy coloring birds.  I was joking with my friends that every card I make for the rest of the year is going to have a bird on it.  As you can see from my assortment, I played with a large variety of colors.  Some of the birds might not be realistic in color, but I chose colors that I like.  Today I wanted to share two cards using some of my stash of birds.  I chose two different Memory Box dies that I thought would frame the colored birds well.


For the first card, I cut the Graceful Branch Oval die out of kraft cardstock.  I colored the branches with a dark brown Copic marker so that they would be a different color from the frame.


Next, I added my little bird that I had colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and added a saying from the Sentimental Iris stamp set.


A couple of days ago, I shared a picture of all my colored birds on Instagram and asked what color bird I should use.  One of the @memoryboxco subscribers named Tracy responded "pink," so I decided to make a pink card.  I started with the Bubble Burst die, which cuts decorative lines as well as circles.  I really like this die because it makes it easy to highlight a central image on your card.  You could use it for birthdays, holidays, etc.


Once again I colored the bird with the Zig markers and added a saying from the Bird Sanctuary clear set. 

I hope you were inspired to do a little coloring of your own.  Don't worry though....  I really don't plan to put birds on all my future projects!
