Mel's Colour Challenge

The colours for Mel's colour challenge this week are Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, Handsome Hunter, Basic Black and Whisper White. As soon as I saw this picture I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous bird from the Always stamp set. (spring Mini)
It's hard to see in the photo but I used Basic Black textured card stock for the base. I embossed the bird with black embossing powder and coloured in the pattern with stampin write markers. The ribbon flower I saw on Dawns Stamping Thoughts and had to try, it turned ok! I love it with the red rhinestone brad. I'll try the ribbon flower with glitter next time.Recipe
