ATC: Feathers


Welcome to Terri, Babs and Wendy - I'm thrilled you could join me! 

This week, the ATC challenge at Wicked Wednesday is Fins, Feathers or Fur.

I went with feathers, as I remembered I had a cute little bird by Miss Rach, who is the sponsor. 

I bought this bird because it was pretty to look at - I had no idea how gorgeous it is in real life! It's an Australian Bee Eater and I had to Google it to see how I should colour it. WOW!!! I didn't expect that.


{Moral of this little tale: buy from Miss Rach and get educated :-) teehee! } is my ATC:

The marbled background was printed using shaving cream and Dylusions ink in Fresh Lime and Calypso Teal. The edges of the card were then inked in black.
The bird was coloured with alcohol markers, then fussy cut leaving a thin white border. This was matted onto black card and fussy cut again. The image was added to the ATC on foam pads. Glitter was applied to the little heart and 2 craft feathers were stuck to the bottom corner along with a lime green bow. Such a 'tweet' little bee eater!

Thanks for stopping by today!

There's still time to add yourself to the draw for my blog candy.
