Still loving this cute little bird from the stamp set Honeycomb Happiness. (Free with a $90 purchase during Saleabration.)
Tips and Techniques: I stamped him onto Shimmery White cardstock and used an aquapainter and some Soft Sky ink to paint a wash of colour. Shimmery White is a handy option for watercolouring - the slightly shiny surface means you can do a little blending and it is less inclined to pill or go soggy. Snip him out with some scissors. I've used a square punch and some leftover scraps of Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper (another freebie option during Saleabration.)
Colouring is having a resurgence in popularity at the moment. Seems like I see adult colouring books in every store. They're fun aren't they. I find the process of colouring so relaxing. You can also use your stamps to make some great little pieces to colour then add to a card and post to someone special. I enjoyed this article on some of the benefits of colouring in.

Here's another fun idea for our little bird. Grab some of the cute little honeycomb embellishments (page 9 of your Occasions Catalogue) and add a tummy. You can leave them as is or spritz on some colour. Very cute.
