Another bluebird

There are a few blues in colour challenges at the moment, so bluebirds are still on my mind…

This is a birthday bluebird sitting in the pink blossoms. I’ve tried out a few new techniques for me – spattering the background, new L’Aquarelle stamps watercoloured and cut out and pieced together.

These are as close as I could get with my watercolours to the colours at Just Add Ink 352

The haiku ofr this one

A bluebird trilling
joyful in the tree above.
Happiness floods me
