Silhouette Birds for CAS Watercolour

Hello friends.

It's time for a new challenge at

This month Loll has challenged us to use silhouettes on our watercolors.
Silhouettes can be black, white, gray, any metallic (silver, gold, etc.), dark blue
or dark brown.

I've chosen to use a black silhouette cut from a die my friend and teammate,
Christine, sent me for my birthday.  I love these sweet little birds!
 I only used 3 of the 5 birds since the window is small.

The background was done with Brushos and water.  I think it looks like a sunset.

Our design team is joined by the very talented Birgit (Rapport fran ett skrivbord) and
there are some beautiful inspiration cards at the challenge site.

I hope you'll join us at
CAS Watercolour

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

So glad you liked your die:)
I love your incredible sunset background with your watercolours. It reminds me of our recent sunsets in Vancouver due to the fires in the Province. In major devastation nature gives you a touch of beauty.
