Colour Dare 240 - The Weird Birds

Well, I am facing a time crunch as I have been fighting off the flu for what seems like forever... it comes and it goes and I haven't felt like doing any creating at all for the last couple of weeks. Now my creative team requirements are catching up to me. I was way ahead, but not any longer. 

The colours this week for Colour Dare are those from the Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Pack - there are several so we are suggesting that you use a minimum of 4 of them but you can certainly use more if you wish. They are: Glacier Lemon, Pacifica, Raspberry, Willow, Whisper, Black and White Daisy. That's quite a list! 

This idea is actually one that I saw a while ago but I can't remember where or whose it was so my sincere apologies to whoever came up with the original, very cute idea. I loved the thought of the birds being different and the saying that went with it! I chose to use a few papers from the Some Kinda Wonderful paper pack - and black as an outline. ShinHan Markers were used to colour in the birds. 

I am also adding this card to the Three Amigos Challenge - they have a challenge going during the month of April so if you happen to be creating using the Some Kinda Wonderful Paper Pack, be sure to enter your project into that challenge as well. 

Join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the Some Kinda Wonderful colour palette (minimum of 4 of the colours shown). You have until Thursday at 10pm EST to link up your project.
