Looking Pretty Bird!

Here's my latest card for I love Promarkers. This week the challenge theme is Things with wings and the Sponsor is QKR Stampede.
I've used a digi image called  Looking Pretty  and you can find her by clicking on the link. I wanted to make her bright and pretty despite her stubbly chubby legs!!

I used Doodlebug Tangerine glitter paper and mounted some dark blue almost purple paper from The Paper company for the background. I die cut the Frame from silver mirri card using a Sizzix die and used this to frame the saying "What makes you different, makes you beautiful." This was from a digi set from Pink Petticoat. I added three prima pearls in co-ordinating three colours of the Bird along with some gem Swirls to add some extra glamour. I also used a silver pen and a little star dust Stickles to highlight bits of the birds feathers. I also added a little glaze on her beak to make it shine.

I coloured the image using these promarkers & Flexmarkers -
Legs & Beak - Buttercup, Tulip & Canary.
Feathers - Baby pink, Cerise, Carmine & Magenta.
Tail feathers - Gold, Bright Orange & Orange.

I'm pleased with how she has turned out - It reminds me of the Song "Shake your Tail Feathers!" Makes me want to shimmy around!!
