Oddball Bird Set


Clean and simple in design AND message!


Hi All! Ever since I did my clean and simple entry for MFT I have been craving more clean and simple layouts! I love clean and simple, but felt I used that formula way too often. But boy it has been nice to create some. Today I have one of the three quirky oddball birds sitting on her branch “tweeting” you a simple message. Now, on with the Show and Tell


I looked at these leaves and thought “ok what green will I color them with?” Then I thought, “hmmm NO! let’s do fall colors” That is how I ended up with these cool rust colored leaves. I have been using this color combo a lot lately. Do you do that?


I chose blue for the bird to balance the rusty orange of the leaves and patterned paper. Wanting my branch to NOT be browny brown I chose the E40’s going for a more birch bark color.


A simple sentiment in a fun word bubble die (I think you will see a lot more of these dies!) makes a big statement.
