Twilight Angel

I am so happy you stopped by to visit me today...hope you are having a great week !  Mine has been good just really busy.  We are getting to the 2 week count down till we move and I know the time is just going to fly by KWIM !!!!  I am really excited and can't wait to put together my new crafting is always fun to get a new twist to things.

It's time for another new challenge at CMC Copic Challenge group, this time we want to see you fluff those feathers..
Color an image that has feathers or make it look like feathers---you can use bird images of course or get creative and create a feathered look on clothing, flowers or something else. We want to see the texture so keep the stoke lines visible.  Winner of this challenge will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to The Paper Temptress , and also be entered into the monthly draw for a $50.00 Gift Certificate to!  Now those are some great prizes so grab your copics....find some feathers and come play !

My image is a digital image from Crafts and Me, she is called "Twilight" I just fell in love with her as she has such a peaceful look.  I have printed her out on Cryogen white paper and she is colored with copics, with stickles added  randomly.  I have used Nestabilites Labels Five to frame her, I traced around the outside of the nestie so she would fit and just cut it out and then put her on the pink backing and trimmed close to the nestie shape....custom job KWIM heheheh !  My DP's are Basic Greys "Bittersweet"  I have used the Magnolia DooHickey die "Antique Lace" and the "Flourish", you can get these at Magnolia-licious.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  So what are you waiting for find an image with some feathers and come play with us !

Hey Sis! You know I love, love, love this beeeeeautiful card! It is gorgeous! And your coloring is AMAZING! Beautiful job on the feathers....just beautiful! And thanks for sharing that tip about hand cutting around the outside of the Nestie. Sometimes an image just won't fit & that's a great tip!!!
