Mashup Aviary Thanks...

Hi there,

There's a fun colour challenge this week at the Friday Mashup:

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with the colors "Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise & Soft Suede".
  2. Or Make a "Thank You" project .
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Thank You project w/ the colors Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise & Soft Suede".
I decided to pair the colours with the sketch from Pals Paper Arts:

As demonstrators we were able to pre-order some things from the up-coming Autumn/Winter catalogue as well as the NEW in-colours - hooray!! I was hoping mine would arrive in time for this colour challenge so I could use Midnight Muse... and my box of goodies arrived on Monday - woohoo! I used the Aviary set to create my focal panel...

I stamped the Midnight Muse background with some of the images from the Aviary set. The So Saffron panel is a mix of cardstock embossed with the dotty embossing folder and some So Saffron dsp layered on Whisper White. The central panel is a shape cut with the labels framelits dies, stamped with the birdcage stand in Soft Suede. I stamped each birdcage with Soft Suede and the owl and bird inside then trimmed with my paper snips and popped up with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched out with the Word Window punch. The ribbon is whisper white taffeta spritzed with So Saffron ink mixed with water.

Make sure you pop over to the Friday Mashup to check out what the rest of the DT have created.

Thanks for stopping by!
