SU Backyard Basics with Itty Bitty Banners

I warned you that there would be some more SU Backyard Basics  coming up…I used the flower and the sweet little bird this time. I am really taken with the style of this stamp set- so artistically natural. I used my SU Write Markers straight up with this- no blender pen. Since the colors were light and I used a light touch when coloring, it turned out well without a blender pen. I used Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe for the flower and So Saffron and Daffodil Delight for the bird. The leaves were done in Pear Pizzazz.

I used the challenge for a spring thank you card over at The Paper Players # 185 this week.
