Party Bird

This is another of the cards that we made at stamp club this past Friday. This card was made with the new Pun Fun set. It also features the Berry Bliss designer paper. The pink and brown color combo was an all-around hit. I was going to make a Valentine initially, but then the new set was sitting there on my desk (and I was procrastinating / experiencing a block), so I switched to a bird-day card.

The watercoloring on this one is very simple, and uses my premise of trying to give the images dimension by coloring from darker to lighter, either working from just one side of the image to the other side, OR, by working from both sides to the middle. The watercolor paper is particularly forgiving for this process because you can spread the color more easily as well as blend more smoothly as you layer the color.

Also, the picture doesn't show it much, but there are Dazzling Diamonds on the hat's pom-pom.
