FMS44 and For The Birds

What a fun stamp set For the Birds is! I love all the cute images and this set is great for so many occasions and holidays. I thought the birds looked cute combined with some Pool Party doilies and a polka dot background. 

The inspiration for my project is this week's Freshly Made Sketches layout. I hope the team doesn't mind that I used some creative license and veered from the sketch a bit. I couldn't help it, I had this picture in my head and it wouldn't go away...Yup, I know, scary!

The images in For The Birds are super easy and fun to color in and you can color them several different ways. I stamped my images onto Whisper White Card Stock with Black Stazon Ink, and then colored them with Stampin' Write Markers. They would look great watercolored, too.
