Play Date Cafe Challenge #159

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! I know I did.

This week, we have a wonderful challenge, it's a color splash!

After my non-painty card last challenge, I knew I wanted to do something kinda messy this time. But the problem with red is that you can't really add red splats, especially with no other colors....because it looks like blood drops!

So, I found this pin on pinterest and thought it would be fun to create a red birdie. That way, I can play with my paints but it wouldn't look like a crime scene :)

Here's what I came up with:

And yup, it is another tag. I really like making them! This one would actually work really well on a package, I think.

I drew the bird by hand on some book paper, painted it red, and added some gesso and glitter. The background of the tag is stamped.

If you want to participate in The Play Date Cafe Challenge, it's easy! All you have to do is make a crafty project of any type using the above color story, then link it up at the PDCC blog. This week, you can win a fabulous prize from the Play Date Cafe vault.  I can't wait to see your creations!

Your bird is so unique~love that you hand drew it! Gorgeous tag~
You are wise...I don't realize until AFTER I splatter with red, that it looks gruesome. ;)
