I came across my inspiration for these cute little "splotch" birds while marathon-watching YouTube tutorials for using alcohol inks. However, these little guys popped up (watercolor) and I couldn't resist watching the video. You can find the Amber K Creative video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1H9Tnv2xUI&t=4s.
Since I've been practicing with alcohol inks, I created a version (nowhere near as cute as Amber K's) using alcohol inks on Yupo** paper. But, I wanted to share here, because you can easily use SU! watercolor paper and ink refills! The "details" are drawn with a Sharpie. I haven't decided if I want to add a sentiment. My first attempt is below.
