Musical Thinking of You - Stampin' Up! Sweet Songbirds

   I'm playing along with the Festive Friday Challenge today.  They are celebrating World Music Therapy Day with a fun list of inspiration to get your creativity going.  From the list I have used Notes, Supportive Sentiment, Clean and Simple (CAS) Design and Ink Blending.

  Out of all my current stamp sets the Sweet Songbirds is the only one that has anything musical in it so wasn't hard to decide what to start with!

  I started with a piece of Regency Park DSP on the card front.  Next I backed a layer of Basic White with some Polished Pink.  I blended a bit of Balmy Blue into the background so I could have a nice sky for my bird.

  The clouds are punched with the cloud punch and I sponged a bit of Balmy Blue ink on the edges to define them a bit more.  The sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set is stamped in Night of Navy onto one of the clouds and is popped on dimensionals.

  The bird is stamped in Polished Pink and punched out with the Songbird Builder punch.  I added a punched beak in Mango Melody as well as stamped feet in the same color ink.  The bird body and wing are popped on dimensionals.

 Finally I stamped the music notes in Night of Navy to finish the design.  No embellishments are added to keep it more CAS than not.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
