Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. It was a very cool weekend here in SW Ontario. Yesterday, Bill and I went down to Pt. Pelee, to see if there were any new birds have landed. It was so cold along Lake Erie - strong cold winds and cloudy, but I had layers of clothing on to keep me warm.
It felt like winter all over again. Brrrrrr. We had a successful outing, we saw a red-headed woodpecker, palm warbler and a blue gray natcatcher. These birds don't sit in one place too long, always fluttering around so it was hard to get a real good picture of them and with being cloudy not the best for pictures, but I do believe Bill managed to get a couple of good ones. I will share with you once he prepares them.
This afternoon, I managed to work on a card in between cooking a roast chicken dinner and a pot of soup for lunches this week.
I found this sketch I really liked from Card Patterns #160. So I pulled out an image that would work.
I'm using one of the new images from Emily's last release called Flynn needs a cupcake.
I stamped her on bella's bestest paper using black memento ink. I then coloured her up using copics and shading is done with pencils and gamsol. I based my colours on paper from MME called On the Bright Side - One. I think I got a bit carried away with the glitter, I started with just a bit of glitter on the bottom of her dress, and then i just kept on dotting my quickie glue pen all over, so that's why she has so much glitter - but then again a 'girl' needs glitter right! Finished off with some stitching, prima flower and I punched the leaves using a couple of different Martha Stewart leaf punches.
Okay, off to get some things in order to begin the work week again. Have a good week, see you again real soon.
