Birds of a feather...

It's the fourth Monday of the month, and my turn to post on Craft-Dee BowZ challenge blog! It's so much fun each week to see what my teammates have come up with.  This month the team challenge, not your challenge, was Feathers, Fur or Frog Legs using an image from our sponsor, Robyn's Fetish.  I used this cute image named Birdie's Nest. Your challenge at Craft-Dee BowZ is ANYTHING GOES AND ADD A HANDMADE BOW!

We also had the challenge to use green and brown which wasn't too hard to do with a bird image, but then when I made my bird a sparrow, it was all brown. It was a brown bird sitting in a brown nest sitting on a brown branch and I felt like it was just a little too much brown, so I colored a blue bird that has a peach breast.
I colored my image with Copics and want to thank my best friend, Lillian, for sending me these leaves and swirl die cuts. I didn't have anything that looked like the leaves on the branches but Lillian did. Thanks, Lillian! I lucked out with having a bag of assorted colored feathers and the bird cage is a die by Poppy Stamps.  Here's a close-up of the image.

I colored my entire background with light blue chalk and then added some light blue outline around my image. Color. I love color and just green and brown was a killer for me. I always save my bow picture for last...why?  So that when you finish looking at my pictures, it's the last one you see and the best is always last! That's a brown fuzzy brad that I used in the center of my triple looped bow.

  1. A very "tweet" card, my friend !! Great choice to have your bird blue, to stand out, besides being a bluebird of happiness, as they're noted for. Glad your new die coordinated so well with the image foliage - don't ya just luv when that happens !! Of course, your coloring is exceptional, as always, and a terrific touch to add feathers to your creation. Your talent is outstanding, Gail.
