Animal Magic at The Paper Shelter.

Morning All -
Today is the start of a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter. The theme is Animal magic and I knew I had to use this image called Tucan. How cool is he??!

I used a black card base and covered this with a White zigzag die cut panel using My Favourite things Die-namics. I knotted a strip of Blue ribbon and glued this down the edge. I placed the coloured image over the zigzags and then added the die cut leaves which I cut using my Silhouette. I used star dust stickles on the leaves and beak to make them glisten a little.
I finally added a white peel off greeting and a few co-ordinating coloured gems.

I used these promarkers & Flexmarkers to colour the image -
Birds body - Black & Ice Greys
Beak - Gold, Pumpkin, Mandarin & Orange, Sky blue, Azure & Prusian, Vermillion & Maroon.
Leaves - Lime zest, Lime Green, Grass & Emerald
Branch - Raw Sienna & Cocoa.
All edged in Cloud Blue.
