Just Add Ink - Challenge #29

Well I told you I would be back and this time I have completed the new Just Add Ink Challenge. Here is the colour challenge which is absolutely gorgeous!!!:-

When I saw Always Artichoke I must admit that I did cringe as this is a colour I don't use very often. I ended up searching through my scraps and managed to scrape up a couple of small pieces.

So I went on my merry way with my challenge project and lo and behold when I was almost finished I realised, with horror, that I had used Regal Rose instead of Rose Red. I managed to rip off the offending colour and fixed it up with the right one, phew!!

Here is my entry:-
This is the cutest little bird house and the template you can find here. It is very easy to put together. This is the front view and you will notice that I have the top of the roof sticking out a bit and that is because I haven't filled it with anything yet so will look at closing it down with something later on. I'm not sure what kind of bird this is meant to be but it does look cute.

Here is a view of the top. I have versamarked the Canvas background on the roof and then used the word window punch to jazz it up a bit and make it stripey. This roof part was the bit where I had accidentally used the wrong colour so it was quite easy to fix.

Now to enter this lovely challenge.

Happy stamping,

OMGosh! that is totally adorable Karen, I love it!
I didn't have any artichoke at all and was lucky that Amanda sent me a couple of pieces to play with :)
I think it is staying in the new catty so I may have to add at least a little to my collection.

This is gorgeous Karen. I didn't think I'd want to make one of these but you've inspired me. Think I'll go check out that template and add it to my list of things to try.
