The challenge at Allsorts this week is **hand coloured or paper pieced image** and because the bird on this card was hand coloured I'm popping along to share it. I started with some partial stencilling on a square of cream card; die cutting the swirl, sentiment label and two birds before colouring the larger of the birds using watercolour pencils. The swirl was cut from a piece of Pixie Powder coloured kraft card which was left over from a recent project.
