This is the second project I am bringing you which uses the Swirly Bird Stamp Set. This one was a little scary to put together as I did it as ‘live’, with no preparation and just a very rough idea of what I was going to do. I think if I were to do it again I might add a third colour, but as yesterday’s project was ink heavy, I wanted to restrict myself for today’s card.
I think I am happy with how it turned out, although the middle kite does not show the two colours very well, so maybe the problem is not to use a third colour, but to have used colours that were further apart in tone and shade. But I do like the colour combination, so who knows! The colours are Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy, which are both 2016-2018 InColours, so I have listed the set in the product list below, as this saves you money on buying them each separately; always worth remembering.
Anyway, a quick and easy card for a Saturday morning! Grab a cup of coffee and a couple of ink pads and give it a go. Let me know how you get on and which colours you have used.
