Bestest Bird Trio

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown which has a really interesting combo of blush, dusty rose and white.

I loved this combo as soon as I saw it, but I found it soooo challenging to recreate. I’m really grateful that Wanda from the Design Team shared the distress inks that she used – that was really helpful to me.

I just received a big crafty order so I knew I wanted to use the cute Sizzix/Olivia Rose Painted Birds die set. I also bought a few Craft Consortium paper pads – they have a line that replicates alcohol inked panels and as I don’t use alcohol inks, I thought I’d give them a go! It took me a while to find a colour combo that I felt happy with – but now that I have photographed it, the blush looks more on the purple side…..

So I created another version, this time with birds cut from panels created with Milled Lavender and Tattered Rose distress inks. And now the Tattered Rose looks more on the peach side…. Argh! Who would have thought that a combo that I LOVED on first sight could prove so challenging to create with my crafty supplies?!

Anyway, the background die is Honey Bee Stamps’ Delicate Daisy Cover plate and the sentiment is by Mama Elephant.

Thanks for stopping by!
