little bitty bird revisited

Happy September! The beginning of the month means that it is time for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge. This month we are revisiting the Little Bitty Bird set:

Littlebittybird

I think Little Bitty Bird is one of the sweetest sets that I have designed. I love seeing these little birds make an appearance on projects every now and then and I am very excited that the senior design team is revisiting it today!

I decided to emboss a little forest of trees with clear embossing powder on watercolor paper and then used my Clean Color markers to watercolor them in. There's a bird perched in each tree :) After I added the color to the images, I watercolored around the edges of everything with a light gray color.

I added the sentiment "happy everything" using the single words that are in the Little Bitty Bird set. I love the scalloped Noted card bases, but just did the front panel in watercolor paper that I attached to a full kraft cardstock card base. The scalloped edges are perfect for when you tie twine around the card front - the twine tucks right in place and doesn't move around!

I used the Noted: A1 Scalloped card base for this next card. I adore that smaller size! For this card I embossed a branch with a bird perched on it in clear embossing powder and watercolored it just like I did the first card.

For the sentiment I used the single words again from the Little Bitty Bird set to add "sweet friend". I love the set of the two of these cards together. I have plans to send them out separately, but a bundle of multiples of each kind would be such a sweet little gift!
