SNSDC29 A Bird Image

Welcome to another SNSDC where this week we're using a bird image for our cards. I'm using the SNSS digital titmouse image today, and I colored it with Copics. I guess the way I colored the bird looks a little strange, and I don't even have an explanation, other than I simply colored him the way I felt like coloring him :) I used all retired SU colors, papers, and ribbon for this one, and added a SNSS digi sentiment from the helping hand set and added a snippet of ribbon and a pearl. The butterflies were done with a MS punch and the lower panel was embossed with a Swiss Dots ef. The image was cut with a Spellbinders blossom die and sponged with Ranger ink.
If you play along with us, please tag your creations with SNSDC29 when uploading to the galleries.
In addition to the regular monthly challenge prize; during the month of November, one participant, chosen randomly, will receive 4 free digis each week!! You do not have to use SNS digi stamps to play along.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Carol,this titmouse image is on my wish list and now that I've seen what you did with him, he may have moved to the top of my list. I don't think your coloring of him is strange at all, I rather like it. great job on the clouds and I love the papers and your little piece of ribbon with the pearl. beautiful card.

I'm so glad you simply gave yourself permission to color this as you did! As artists - we TRULY must "let the horses run" every once in a while... I adore the look of this card on EVERY level! Beautifully done!!! Positively!
