In My World


In My World...there are bright turquoise and pink regal song birds flying through the air...there is just enough money to pay all the bills and have enough left over for fun things...all my family would live close (enough)...In My World...

Popping by with a quick card I put together after being inspired by this beautiful and regal pendant from Nanny's Room for the Etsy Inspired Challenge. I grabbed an this warbler image from TiffanyDoodles that has been sitting on my table for a long time-just waiting to be colored-then saturated the bird first with water from an Aqua Painter and then went back in with some pigment markers, removing excess colors with a cloth.

Tiffany is also sneaking another new beautiful flower image that will be available this Friday.


So, I'd like to know...What's in Your World?

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Georgia Pacific, (Teal) Paper Company
Digital Image: (Warbler2) TiffanyDoodles
Stamps: (Mega Mixed Messages) PTI
Ink: (Onyx Black) Versafine

Markers: (Rich Regals Pigment) SU
Embellishments: (Black Brad) SU, (Pink Satin Ribbon) SU
Tools: Aqua Painter, (Labels One Nestabilities) Spellbinders
