Teresa's Birds

     Earlier this week, I posted a card I had done using a lovely Goldfinch image for TNT Artspirations.  If you missed that post, you can see it by clicking HERE.  In that post, I promised to share with you two other incarnations of that same image but turning it into 2 completely different birds, one an Oriole and the other a Meadowlark.  Here's the Oriole first in his lovely autumn colors.


Colored w ProMarkers
Cut with Spellbinders die
Harvest gold mat cut w Spellbinders die
Black card front cut w same Spellbinders die
Die cuts are inset into each other
Polka dot ribbon for hand tied bow

    And here's the Meadowlark, with the image reversed.

This card is based on the sketch at My Favorite Things.
I originally had the mats offset and at an angle behind the image 
but it just looked too confusing with the wonky shapes.

Colored w ProMarkers, chalks, & gel pens
Cut w Spellbinders
Mats for image are cut w Spellbinders
Polka dot papers are scraps
Stitched orange ribbon is a scrap
Bi-color, satin ribbon for bow is a scrap
Sentiment printed and cut w Avery Elle die
