Mix It Up Monday: Best Birds


It’s Mix It Up Monday again and time for another project made with a colour combination from my latest set of In Color charts.

It’s time for another outing for Flirty Flamingo although I barely dipped my toe into the pink ink. I must try harder to overcome my pink phobia! I made a batch of these cards to thank the ladies who ordered from me this month. I also learned an important lesson about planning as I began by rolling out loads of Very Vanilla birds before placing one on the card and deciding it didn’t stand out enough as it was too similar to the Very Vanilla background. Doh! So I had the choice of colouring them all in or die-cutting another batch in Crumb Cake. As you can see, I went for the latter. 

And honestly, the branch IS made from Chocolate Chip (I just double-checked), although the photo makes it look more like Early Espresso. I’m not taking another one, this is already my second attempt!
