Three Birds and the The Summer of Color 3


I was thinking of my friend, Linda Lou, as I made this page.  She loves birds.  The time I helped her make birthday invitations for her mom, she wanted birds on them. 

 I'm also participating the The Summer of Color 3 and this week's colors were Citron Green & Turquoise. I used a couple of greens trying to get the right shade. This is as close as I could get with what I had. Click on link for more information about this challenge.

The birds were made with the Stampin Up bird punch. The branch is a stencil I bought at Michaels or JoAnn's.   I would like to thank whoever did the video using the color box stylus for stencils.  It worked better than anything I've tried.  I wish I could remember which video I saw it in so I could give them a big hug and credit here.
