Valentine Bird.

Hello -  We are back after a month off from New Releases with some amazing new images at All Dressed up. You can buy them all here -} All dressed up Etsy shop

 
I have used Little Birdie to make this Valentines card for a Colleague to give to his wife. I thought it worked perfectly with the Kraft card base.


I've used a Daffodil frame and heart from Wycinanka to frame the image and I filled some of the hearts and flowers with Hydrangea Liquid Pearls. This also helps stick them to the page. I am addicted to these chipboard and paper embellishments at the mo! As you can see you can also colour them with your promarkers or other mediums.
I tied some fine twine around the edge with a small bow and added a coloured heart - this also helps keeps the bow together in the right place. I then added the greeting using letters from Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection "Shine" and also a little Happy Valentines sticker from Crate Paper Hello Love collection. Finally I added a few co-ordinating gems from Papermania.

I used only a few Promarkers to colour the image -
Bird - Tan, Cinnamon, & Chestnut.
Leaves - Forest Green & Marsh Green.
Hat & Scarf - Peony, Pink Lobster, Red Sweater & Maroon.
I also softed the edge of the entire image with Linen.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -


I love how this turned out and I hope "the Wife" does too!
Don't forget All Dressed up Challenge blog on now and we will be back with a new Challenge on 15th Feb and you can join in with the Facebook challenge now which is Red and romance themed.
Enjoy
