I’ve tried to identify the bird in Nature Walk, but I just can’t. Even my parents’ bird book (copyright 1949) was no help. Their book was the one I used to create the most marvelous science fair project in grade school. I remember the project being award-winning, but perhaps my memory has faded.
While doing this light research, I had to laugh when I read the category “Confusing Fall Warblers.” Not that those pages yielded any more information, but I was emboldened to create a bird unlike any in nature. At least unlike any in my books!
I made the mistake of over blending on the image that I had stamped in Early Espresso, and bad things happened. And I needed more pop from the color. VersaMark and clear embossing powder to the rescue! I like the effect. Not perfect, which suits me fine.
This is the last (I think) card using my free Sale-A-Bration sets — this one has been on my wish list for a bit. The price finally got me!
