CASE Study #10

This is the card by our muse for the month, Barbara Anders. Don't you love the rich colors?



And here is my take on it.  I used both Barbara's sketch and her lovely colors.  I fell down when it comes to the bow, though; just don't have anything that voluptuous!


The birds are watercolored using distress inks, and my blue panel is stamped.

Supplies: cream, cream parchment, light turquoise, black cardstock, dp from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon, Hero Arts stamps H5261 Flourish Trio, CL371 Essential Messages, Crafty Secrets Bird Notes Medium, DeNami musical note stamp, versafine onyx black, versamark, broken china and fired brick distress inks, clear embossing powder, unknown striped ribbon, colored pencils
