"Orange" Color Perceptions ATC

For July, in the Color Perceptions ATC swap on ArtVentures the color is Orange. Orange makes me feel warm & comfortable which means cozy! I started with some previous made orange backgrounds and also colored a sheet of music with dried marigold Distress Ink.
 Tore up the papers and adhered them to an atc sized sheet of thin cardboard using the unused bits technique. The edges were colored with copper acrylic paint.
 Glued some orange fabric from my scraps onto thin cardboard and used a die to cut out the bird and wing. Colored the edges with terra cotta acrylic paint, adhered the wing to the body and added an orange 'pearl' for the eye. Also used the terra cotta to color the out side edges of the atc.
 Attached the bird to the atc, punched a music note out of orange colored foil candy wrapper, added orange feathers for the nest and stamped letters spelling cozy with walnut stain distress ink over orange colored paper. Nice and cozy!
