Peaceful Robin Card

It was a simply lovely, warm day here today, so hubby and I went to lunch this afternoon and then to the beach and walked along the pier.  So many people were out, walking and enjoying the oddly spring-like weather at the end of February.  

Today's card was inspired by our outing.  The birds were chirping so loudly, the warm breeze felt so good, the sunlight was invigorating.  Ahhh, early hints of spring.  But, alas, we have March to get through.  So, in anticipation, here is my card for today.....
The stamps are Stampendous CRR158 Cling Nested Bird and SSC134 Sympathy clear stamps (I don't have the packaging so do not know the name of this one).  

I created a light watercolored background using the smoosh technique, then stamped the image and watercolored it.  After watercoloring, I went over the outlines with a dark brown fine point marker.  I stamped some Penny Black curlique stamps faintly along the borders.  The tag stitched die cut is from My Favorite Things.

This is for day 27 of The Daily Marker 30 day color challenge.  Also for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Inspired by a song (Rockin' Robin by Bobby Day), and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes .

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you got to enjoy some time with a loved one today.  

Be blessed,
