A little bird told me - Viva Magenta!

Today I am part of an Instagram hop with the Altenew Educators celebrating the Pantone color of the year; Viva Magenta! I felt that a card all in this vibrant color would be a bit much for my style so I paired my magenta colored birds with a green foliage background.

The inside of the card has a little bird peeking through as well.

As I didn't want a white border around my birds I fussy cut them, except for their little feet - too hard!

To obtain a color close to Viva Magenta I used several red and purple Altenew inks stamped in layers - of course I used a stamp positionner for this - my trusted MISTI.

As you can see it's a reddish purple, perhaps a bit darker than my little birdies...

There are generous prizes offered by Altenew so please join the Instahop that starts at @altenew for a chance to win.

Happy spring peeps!
