Modern Art Card

Hi, Lisa Lara here today showing one way to stretch your stamps.
That is to use them in different ways. 
 Bet you never thought of stamping the bird from 
right on top of the trees and coloring in the spaces of the bird different colors.
  I did and made a modern art card. 
 
 My card base  is a standard A2 ( 4 1/4 x 5 1/2)
Here our panel is 3 x 4 1/4, I did this so the trees would stamp the entire height of my panel.
All I did was just stamp the trees with the extended branch touching the next one, by stamping from the left to the right.
Next, I adhered a black panel 3 1/8 x 4 3/8 for a little border.  
And colored in each space of my birds using soft rainbow colors.
I then adhered my finished panel to a vellum panel 3 3/4 x 5.
Then I generously (so my panel won't sag) adhered dimensional tape to pop it up on my card base.

I finished it off with some clear sequins. 
 So quick and easy too!

This card is also for 
Virginia's View Challenge #11 Clean Slate
There's nothing like a challenge to get your creative juices flowing.
