Winter Bird

Hello Crafty Friends, it's me, Laura!

I have for you today, my DT card for Twist Of Faith Cards.  This week we are using a SKETCH and I decided to make a sort of pocket card out of it.
This wonderful image is from The Doodle Garden and is called Winter Bird 1.  I just had to pair it up with papers from an s.e.i. paper pad that I purchased at the local scrapbook store's yard sale.  I love this color combo of deep red and what I consider to be a deep aqua blue.
I have no idea how this second picture came out so much brighter, but no matter what I do, I can't seem to tone it down.  I'm guessing the larger area of lighter colors once the cards were seperated? And I did have to back up a bit...  Anyway, I had a lot of fun coloring up this little birdy with my Copics and adding texture with chipboard glittered snowflakes, glittered bells and pearl gems for snow.

The Sketch
I hope you will be able to visit the Twist Of Faith Cards challenge blog and join in on the fun.  My teamies have whipped up some gorgeous creations using images created by our sponsor, The Doodle Garden.  One randomly chosen winner will receive the two featured, brand new images that include the one I used above.  We also feature the top three outstanding entries to be given our Twist Of Faith Top 3 badge for your sidebar.

I hate to cut this short but, I must.  I thank you so much for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon.  Have a good night and better tomorrows!

♥ Laura C.
