Two Birds Card in Red & Orange & ***Giveaway***

*****EDITED: I will giveaway this lovely bird Image (hand drawn by my friend HN), just comment  on this post and next week 21.10.2015 I will draw one name to win this Bird Image *****

I see some challenges with fall theme, trully speaking I dont like the coldness weather but the colors of the leaves is so beautiful to look for. In my Country Indonesia, we only have summer season and rainy season..I enjoy looking the leaves everytime I walk to my office :)

My Friend HN he still keep secret his identity :)) in Yogyakarta (Indonesia) drew this Bird Image  and I think this bird could be a great Image to used for a Fall card..

First I stamped the leaves, sponged the background with distress ink:

and after that, I colored those leaves with three different color from Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor. 

Here is the whole look of my card, I colored the two birds also with the same color with the leaves above.

The lovely Cut Out Sentiment I have got from Joyce, many many thanks dear Joyce this is really a great DIE :), I also use the Embossing folder woodgrain for the kraft paper.

Challenges for my card are: 

Little Red Wagon #310: It´s All About The Boys(sdh a. p.)
The Male Room #20: Autumn

Sweet Stampin (October Challenge): Anything Goes 

Craftin Desert Diva Linky Party

Simon Says Monday Challenge: Wonderful Watercolor

The Challenge #46

Thanks for looking and happy wednesday :)

  16. What a beautiful card, and I am so glad that you had that die cut I sent you to finish it off. I had forgotten all about it. I was cleaning and organizing earlier today and came across the goodies you sent me, and I was just thinking I needed to use some of that gorgeous paper.

  17. Beautifully created! Love those rich colors! I will not be entering your giveaway as I don't have proper papers & inks to print them. And thanks so much for your lovely comments! You sure know how to make me blush! :)

  18. WOWZER! Love the autumn leaves, Monika. YOu've coloured it beautifully. And you friend HN is an artist. Handsome birds! I love autumn....the leaves, the colours, the smells, the food ...mmmm. Winter is probably my least favourite season. I could skip it altogether if not for Christmas!
    hugs, Asha

  19. Beautiful colouring, Monika, and I like the bird image, it's lovely. The colours you chose look wonderful with the woodgrain kraft.
    Thanks you for your lovely comments over on my blog. The leaf image I used was from a set by Clearly Besotted called 'Stylish Flowers' but I think it was a limited edition set and is no longer available :( If you email Stephanie and Clearly Besotted she may be able to help you.

  20. Love the birds and love the leaves and how you used them both as embellishments and as part of your own made background paper. Lovely fall feel, but the image would work for any season, it's all up to colors and design. Beautiful!

  21. How pretty is your fall card and how talented is your friend to hand draw the birds!! I do not like the cold weather either and today the hight is 48 degrees! I am already shaking from the chilly weather...better get stamping faster to warm up!!

  27. So nice to see you getting some dies for your stash, that one is beautiful. This is such a fantastic card and your so good with using your Autumn tones. I don't like the cold weather much myself but it does make me look forward to Spring when it finally comes around. Its been like Summertime here at the moment which has been wonderful but lots of gardening to do.

  28. Again.. I know I commented on this card also.. I love the birds your friend drew and the winter scene he created also.. I don't know where my comments are going. I do love the colors and the fun card. Hugs

  29. GORGEOUS!!! Beautifully done and just so many wonderful details on this card with that awesome picture!!!

  30. Oh I love this, Monika! The leaves are gorgeous! I love fall colours! You've coloured them beautifully! The birds are wonderful too! Thank you for the giveaway but I know I am too late hehe!
