Country Birdhouse for As You See It Challenge #327

country birdshouse for aysi 327 1

I love Colour Challenges, but this one, As You See It Challenge #327, Primary Intensity, devised by our team member, Joanne, took a little thinking because all three colours are very vivid primary colours. I did what I often do for any challenge; I went looking for an appropriate stamp set to use. Right off the bat, Country Birdhouse caught my eye, because I could picture a whimsical blue,  green and yellow birdhouse with a couple of blue and yellow birds perched on it. Oh, here's the challenge banner:

Here's how it turned out:

  • On a Blueberry Bushel card base, I added a layer of Granny Apple Green, 5 3/8" x 4 1/8", and then a Basic White layer 5 1/4" x 4". I debated over embossing or stamping something on the white layer, but finally opted to keep it plain so as not to compete with those intense colours.
  • Using the Country Birdhouse stamp set, I stamped 2 of the birds and one of the little flower bouquets on some Basic White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the images using the Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Combos.
  • I die cut those stamped and coloured images with the coordinating Country Birdhouse dies.
  • Continuing with the Country Birdhouse dies, I cut the birdhouse the 3 roof pieces, the ledge, the perch, the stand, and various flowers and leaves. For these I used Daffodil Delight, Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green and Basic White cardstock as shown in the photo above.
  • I assembled all the pieces using glue, glue dots and dimensionals.
