Summer card camp 2: out of our comfort zone

Today we had to make a card using a style we are not comfortable with or rarely use. Shabby chic is something I try to recreate but never can. Whimsical, frilly and very embellished cards are just not my style. So here is my creation. I used a watercoloring dry embossing technique for the background. Using the colors for this week I used several brown shades and dark purple to color in the birds. I blended with mineral oil. As you can tell I need to practice. Ha ha.
