Loonie Stamper's Challenge #43 - Birdy Hello Friend

So it was Wendy's turn to pick the Loonie Stamper's Challenge colors and she picked a tough one for me. I know that Grey and Yellow are very common these days in the fashion industry!! But the addition of pink really threw me. My first attempt...well, let's just say you won't see it as it ended. I did take it apart and you will likely see bits and pieces of it in various projects in the future. In fact, I used the card base in the project I did post here.
I love the Birds of a Feather set from Papertrey Ink so I pulled it out to stamp this cute little bird. I also love the sentiments in the set. The combination of fonts is awesome. I decided that I should pull out some of my decrative scissorsand use them for a change. As you can see, I added a tiny bit of the pink under the button here. It perplexed me to find a way to add it into the color scheme in a way that made sense. Not sure if it works here but it's in there.
Well, I have to go see what all the Loonie Gals did with this color combination (no, I don't look first, it influences me too much and I can't think of my own ideas.... ):
Supplies: Stamps-Birds of a Feather, Background Basics Retro (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink); Versamark, Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko); Paper-Baisic Grey (Stampin' Up!), Select White, Hibiscus Burst, Lemon Tart Bitty Dots (Papertrey Ink); Other - Grey ribbon (Michael's), button, white floss (DMC), decorative scissors (Provo Craft), dimensionals.
Thanks for dropping in!
