It's time for a new challenge at CAS Watercolour
I'm hosting this month and I chose
This is one of my favorite bird stamps and I had him all painted up.
It's called Snowbird and there was snow and berries on the branches.
I know how we are all yearning for spring and didn't want to post a winter bird.
I filled in the snow (which was plain paper) with a marker
and punched out some flowers to cover the berries.
The piece I punched the flowers from was a piece of
Faux Mother of Pearl so the flowers have a variegated look and a little shine.
I just had to add a dot in the middle.
I added a bit of green at the end of the branches to represent new leaves.
(I didn't do a very good job in my hurry so I thought I should explain that.)
I die cut my design image and used the larger die to emboss the card front
and placed the design on top.
I hope you'll join us at
CAS Watercolour this month.
