I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked the background with some blue chalk. After coloring I decided to add a little shimmer to the bird by painting on some iridescent medium. It doesn't overpower the image, but adds just a bit of glimmer to it. I die cut the image and let part of the wing fly out. Here's a close up of the shimmer on the bird
The background is embossed with a swirl embossing folder and I stamped the sentiment with a stamp from a Stampin' Up! set. It's a simple card, but one I think she will enjoy.
Did you get a chance to see the cards that Holley's Hobbiests did for the new blog challenge? If you didn't you should make a point to go see them because they are great! Some really funny cards there!
I know you probably think I'm beating a dead bush by telling you about the One A Day In May sale yet again, but I really don't want you to miss out on this deal! Plus I heard that everyone who purchases the One A Day In May will be entered to win a special prize. I don't know what the prize is yet, but I'll let you know as soon as I do! Even without the special prize, it's something you don't want to miss out on!
Squigglefly will be introducing a new artist this weekend too. I know you will love her work and I'm SO EXCITED that she has joined us! Stay tuned folks!
