#80 Little Bird
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - paper piercing (not piecing!)
Prize & sponsor this week - $10 gift certificate from Digi Doodle
Yes, you know how I like my paper piecing, but this week is paper PIERCING - so basically put some holes in your paper & card fellow Promarker lovers. The image I chose to work with this time around is from our sponsor, Digi Doodle & is that of a humming bird. I reckon he could have pierced my card with that beak of his! See how my mind works! LOL. I went with very subtle ones echoing the corner shaping but you could go as fancy as you like with yours. As well as colouring my image with Promarkers I went with the colour theme over at Colour Create of blues & greens reserving my pop of colour for the flower. I thought that these tiny birds would only be attracted to a bright tropical bloom & I have hopefully giving him a hot & sunny forest glade to reside in. :)
When I was taking the photo for my blog I realised that it looked so much better viewed from a distance, LOL, I know, I know I can hear the wise-cracks from here, but honestly it does. Think it is because the background works better, merging together further so that the image itself pops out more.
If you would like to join in with our challenge this week, don't forget to use either Promarkers, Trias, Flexmarkers or Aquamarkers on your card or project - and don't forget the theme of PIERCING (not piecing!!! - I have visions of some fabby paper piecing & not a hole in sight, LOL). I would love it if you could find the time to leave me a comment, as would all the DT I am sure if you would like some more inspiration.
