It was natural to choose this stamp for the card challenges that I entered. For the ColourQ challenge there was a really pretty assortment of colours:
While the Fab Friday challenge had a sketch that I knew I wanted to use:
Combined, they would be the basis for a really fun card. Altogether I used a number of stamp sets for my card. The patterned Coastal Cabana strip is stamped using the Handcarved stamp. The feathers were stamped with one of the stamps from the Happy Hooray set. The little bird and sentiment, of course, are from the For the Birds set.
The inks that I used are the Poppy Parade (retired), More Mustard (retired), and Coastal Cabana. My base cardstock is Naturals White and I've also used Whisper White as well as a strip of Coastal Cabana. I also used the Woodgrain embossing folder.
I'm happy with the result. It's fun to set a sketch goal, work within set colours, and discover what I can come up with.
