This card is inspired by Julie Gearinger. I saw her card on Stampin' Connection, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website and was motivated to create my own version.
I colored the pheasant with markers at the direction of Bill, my husband. I am really glad he helped!
To get all the colors to blend & jive I used an inkssentials blending block with velcro blending sponges. I tried my wedge foam sponges, but it didn't get the desired effect I wanted. for the sun I blended So Saffron around the whole left-side area where I knew the sun would be. I then punched a circle out and adhered it with temporary adhesive. I then started blending the following colors: More Mustard, Peach Parfait, Pumpkin Pie, & Calypso Coral. On the bottom for the ground I blended River Rock, Crumb Cake, & Soft Suede.
Instead of throwing the circle away when I was done masking for the sun, I turned it over and stamped the sentiment and a few leaves on it. (I hate to waste anything if I can help it!)
Anyway, here it is. hope you like it!
