Sponged, Punched Birds

A few weeks ago, I posted this white on white card.

I wondered how it would look with the birds colored.

What do you think?


These little birds flew off to wish a very special couple a Happy Anniversary.



I sponged the color on these birds.



I've got 2 kinds of dry embossing on this card.

Pixies Snippet Playground
Pixies Crafty Workshop
I used some snippets for the hearts and the birds.

Glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!

I think I like this one even more than the first beauty. You still have all the lovely white on white but with the pretty soft colouring on the birds.

Wow Bonnie, this is absolutely wonderful. I've spent the past few minutes flipping between both cards you made - and truly can't choose a favourite as they're both just perfection!

Hugs

Hi Bonnie. An awesome idea to take a white-on-white card and give it a little punch of colour ... voila, another gorgeous creation. Love the combination of colours --- so pretty. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers. xx

I think I kind of like the birds with a little color on them better. I'm not knocking the white on white version though. They both have their place in this world. Very nicely done.

Both cards are just lovely, Bonnie ... the gorgeous colours on these sweet birds really pop against all that yummy texture ... and that shimmery heart reflects those sweet shades beautifully! Anita :)

Both versions are lovely but I think I like this one a tiny bit more. The birds are so beautifully coloured and they really stand out from the fabulous layered background.
