Less is More Colour Challenge and another bird

Here is Bird number 4... this time he's a bluebird, to match my eyes!
The challenge at "Less is More" this week is another colour challenge and  we have chosen 
'The colour of your eyes'!

In fact my eyes are rather greyish blue, but I have taken a little artistic licence with my colour palette!
Here's another bluey grey-ey card this time using Distress inks to swipe the base layer with a Paper Artsy stamp for the flowers.
More details are on the "Less is More" blog.
Have a great weekend!

  2. This is such a clever idea using a leaf stamp - also looked at your other leaf birds and they are so imaginative.

  14. How lucky you are to have beautiful blue eyes.

    I love both cards but must admit that I think your bird card should be selected as a favortie this week!!! I realize I'm a sucker for cards with birds, but this one is absolutely fabulous. If I had that stamp and branch I'd case it in all the colors of the rainbow. :)
