Chickadee Card ~ Color Dare #477

 Welcome to the last Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge of 2021! Can you believe we're at the end of another year? Let's hope 2022 is  better than we can hope for.

This challenge is based on the colors in the Inspirational Photo seen below. The colors are bright and bold and just make me feel good.  Pick at least 3 colors you see in the photo. Black and White are free to use and not part of the 3. Do not add any extra colors.

When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page.

I decided to make a colorful little bird for this challenge. Maybe I was influenced by the one in the photo. Either way, I love how this little bird turned out. I stamped it in Intense Black ink because I knew I'd be using markers and didn't want the ink to bleed. As I was creating the idea came to me to make it look like the bird was sitting on a vine covered wall singing it's heart out. I love a good bird serenade!
