Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge- Anything Goes!!

Good Wednesday Morning!! Can you believe it is August already... time sure flies!! After the heat of this summer... you would think I'd be welcoming Fall with open arms... and I am.... in a way :) Ready for some cooler temps as we have had above normal this year BUT, I so love summer... and fall brings winter :)

Enough of my whining!!

This month for the Serendipity Stamps Challege it's Anything Goes.....


Since I didn't get a chance to play with the new sweet Bird dies...
As you can see there are several options for using these dies. Layers of feathers and accessories for different occasions or holidays/celebrations.

I die cut the images with watercolor cardstock and colored with Zig Clean Color brush markers... the colors come out bright and beautiful. Used a watercolor brush/pen to blend and get variation in color. I'm still new at this but, comparing to copics (copics have so many color pen choices-over 300 and the Zig large option has 60) so when you try to blend there are less color options. I used a Pretty Pink Posh die (sold at Serendipity Stamps) to create a shaker card. The sentiment is from Serendipity too. 

Our favorite design will receive our winner blog badge and one random winner of this challenge will receive a $20 discount off their next order from Serendipity Stamps.You have until midnight US Eastern Standard Time on September 7 to link your project. The winner and our next challenge will be posted on September 9.

These birdies are adorable Vickie! The red and blue are stunning and I love the details you added, like the black mask on the cardinal and the gorgeous bow. And heck! Who doesn't love a shaker! ??

So cute, Vickie! Love your window tag w/ the birds on top. Making it a shaker is such a great idea...almost looks like a feeder w/ seeds inside.
