As a result, I found a card I liked that was similar but colored with markers and I designed it letting the paper do the work. The only coloring is done with a sponge on the bird in Crumb Cake Ink and Soft Suede. I love these little birds and the thinlets for the birds have an outline image but also an adorable cut out bird that I plan on playing with soon. I created a tutorial for this card in TAMS. When I finished it, I found out that right now those tutorials don't link to typepad, but they will soon. If I can find a way to add the link to my blog I will do so. Otherwise you will have to search for it on TAMS. You can actually print the tutorial out from their site! Pretty cool!
