Watercolor Bird

Birds are one of my favorite images to color because no matter the color combination, it looks natural. While walking through my yard this morning, I came upon the reddest red bird I’ve even seen. He was so red that he was nearly pink! He is the inspiration for this project. The color challenge at Global Design Project this week is a great combo of fruity colors and I at once thought of the beautiful bird from my walk.

The image is heat embossed onto the smooth side of a scrap of watercolor paper with a VersaMark ink pad and Gold Stampin Emboss Powder. When heat embossing an image, it helps all of the fluid to stay inside the lines, making it a tidy and quick paint job 🙂 What color combos could you imagine for this beautiful bird?

  1. Gosh your husband has really worked hard, and your boys are delightful, looking forward to seeing your new creations in your fabulous room

  2. Love seeing your craft room and your family!! Wondering where and how you store your stamps, didn’t see any space for them 🙂 I am trying to figure out something useful for my over abundant stock of goodies – I also am a demonstrator for my own use however I have a mell of a hess at this point and am overcome to a point of not being able to use anything because of having tooooo much stuff.

    • Hi, Verna! That is a tough situation. One thing that helps keep my load under control is that I only work with current stamp sets. Do I get upset when something retired that I really looooove? Yes Ma’am, I do. When Lots of Labels recently retired I was ready to grab the tissues. But, in return I get control over my small space, and I get to choose a new favorite thing. My stamps are stored on top of my new work area/table, nothing fancy, and I plan to make another video soon that features this area. for now it is still a work in progress. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a few minutes to craft something today 🙂

  3. Gorgeous coloring on this little bird, Jenny – watercoloring is my fave, always, lol. Beautifully clean and simple! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

  4. So beautiful! I love the white space and your beautifully coloured bird Jenny….A very elegant card! Thanks for sharing at Just Add Ink.

  5. I love the pop of colour the little bird brings to the card – it really highlights the bird. Very sweet CAS Style. Chantell Just Add Ink
