Neutral and wings

I am here with a masculine card today, and I am sharing it with a few challenges.  First of all I would like to share with Apple Apricot's Simply Neutrals challenge Wen always shares such beautiful things and all those that link up just share such beauty, it is amazing to me how much beauty can be in shades of browns, ivories and whites.  I have a little touch of color in the birds so I hope that's ok.

The bird prints are a stamp in the set also so I just went around the card to frame it all and added a bit of dots with my pen in between.  I used Daniel Smith extra fine watercolor samples on this and I will have to say they worked real nice.  I still need a lot of work but I was happy enough with it for my first time using them.


I am also sharing with with Double D just wing it challenge, there are plenty of wings here :)

Connie, this is sooo beautiful! One of my all-time favorite stamp sets which I still have. Used it last year... my, how time goes by! I just love your pastel watercolored birds. The neutral card base is perfect, and I like the die shape and the way you attached the sentiment with the spiral clip. I've been thinking about getting that Daniel Smith sampler, wondering if they're really better than other watercolors. You did a lovely job with them and I'll take your word for it. You're always inspiring me. I'm glad you linked up with us at Double D!
