Yellow Free Bird ~ CCMC565, FabFri165, SUOC225

Hello there stampers!  Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary's latest color challenge featuring Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, and Daffodil Delight.  I was excited to us Free As A Bird from the new Annual Catalog.  I stamped it on watercolor paper and watercolored with my aqua painter and ink pads.  It was so fun!  I cut the scene out using the fabulous new Stitched Nested Labels die and for that reason I'm sharing my card to the Stampin Up Only Challenge 225-die cutting.  I used the fun sketch from Fab Friday 165 to help me create my card as well.

If you look really, really close at the photo below you can see that I sprayed the die cut panel with shimmer spray after it was all watercolored.  I just love the way this looks!  

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Free As A Bird
Ink: Stazon, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow
Paper: White, Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight, Watercolor, Gingham DSP
