Party Hardy Bird

     This poor bird (Birthday Bird 02 from Bugaboo Stamps) looks a bit like he's partied waaaay too long or is just too old to care about birthdays any more.  :-D  I've done this one as a Guest DT for Catch the Bug and we have a new challenge starting today.  Our theme is a color palette which I'll add just below the photo of my card.


     I colored with a combo of ProMarkers and gel inks, then used some border dies from Spellbinders to cut the image.  I thought that gave the image a great shape and some interesting visual texture with the lacy bits along the sides.

     The striped dp was a scrap in my stash and the sheer, green, ribbon seemed to work well with both the embroidered dragonfly and the dp.  That card front was already so 'busy' I didn't want to add anything else to it.

You colored this beautifully. The translucency of the balloons is perfect. This festive fellow does look a little done in, with his sleepy eyes. Well done. hugs & smiles, Teresa
