I wanted to play in the bird water color challenge this month. The samples and cards in the challenge gallery are just beautiful. A dear friend gifted me a water color class and  I loved it. It's not something I do that often so I need to get back to it. This is an old Stampin Up stamp and I used my Zigs on a craft mat and spritzed with water to do the coloring on the background. Then used them to color the image and a water brush to pull the color out. A Spellbinder die was used to cut the image out. Be kind to one another.

Edited: I forgot to add I used Inka Gold silver for the snail. I wanted it to stand out!

  13. You know I love anything with a sweet bird in it, but your w/coloring is just awesome. The sky looks great with the streaks of blue & white layers, and the rest of your coloring is just great. I'm quite envious that you got to take w/c lessons. I should do that too! TFS & Hugs (PS good for you at your participation in all these challenges!)
