cQc #270 ~ For You!

Hey there! I have something a little different for the new ColourQ palette today. While rummaging through one of my studio drawers I found a package of Jenny Bowlin chipboard birds. I had picked them up a long time ago at Archiver's on clearance. Time to do something with them!



I covered the body with MME soft pink polka dot paper. The reverse side of that paper was used for the wing. Next I die cut the scallop strips, adhered them all together, then added them to the bird. I used some small white pompom trim to cover the upper seam then added my wing on with thick foam pop dots. To bring in the Island Indigo I used some PPP chevron twill ribbon and a small flower button. Finally I added a PTI tiny tag with an itty bitty sentiment!


I had fun making this and I hope you enjoy it! 
Be sure to check out what my teammates have to share using the new palette.
Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by ~Lisa
