Twirly Birds

Happy Bellarific Friday, and just plain old HAPPY FRIDAY works too! I can't believe how busy my days are after a week vacation.

But never too busy to relax and immerse myself into some colouring. These are Stamping Bella's Twirly Birds by Vicki Boutin. Sentiment comes from Jane Davenport's Birdie Jane.

I may have mentioned that I scored the entire set of distress markers when I was at Kitchener's scrapfest and that is what I decided to use on these little birds. Start small I say! For you local shoppers did you know you can get them at Pickle...and you online shoppers can pick them up at Stamping Bella. Do I like them....OH YA! I used a smooth water colour paper and just a bit of ink directly on the image and then blended it out with a watercolor brush. Easy peasy! Then I finished them up with bit of pencil for highlights and shadows and sponged the blank areas with versamagic chalk ink. For a first try, I was pretty pleased with the result and can't wait to experiment more with these markers.

Next week our challenge is all about the men in our lives. So you got it, make something masculine!!!! I've got an idea in my head already and it won't be the typical image you might think for a 'guy' card...but I'll have a perfectly good reason why I chose it! I'm so looking forward to getting it done I just may work on it tonight!

That's it folks...not much else to blab about today.

Okay I must confess, when I first saw this image on the last release I thought - it's okay, but now that I see what you have done with it - I love it!! I think I need it. Beautifully put together, love the colour tones of the shading around the birds.

I do like so much all that you do and a little birdie did not have to tel me that!
