I can't wait for you to see what she did.
And be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's cards.
So much inspiration there.
To do this card, I stamped the image from the Moon Lake set
on a piece of watercolor paper with Memento Tuxedo Black.
The grass and branch were colored with Distress Markers and
blended with an Aqua Painter.
I used the Aqua Painter to blend the black into the chickadee and
added a little orange for his underside with a distress marker.
I blended it again with the Aqua Painter.
Distress ink was carefully sponged around the scene.
Blending with the Aqua Painter smoothed the color out.
I added a little yellow to the washed background
by touching my Aqua Painter to a distress ink pad
then "dropping" the color on the paper.
The birds head was colored with a Black Stampin' Write Marker.
There are so many ways to interpret Distress.
I hope you'll join us.
The CASology challenge is
Carolina Chickadees are mini birds
and this is a mini scene.
I think maybe it's a fit.
Thanks for stopping by.
Love your comments.
