Continuing to make cards for those in my church who are either in Assisted living or are single living alone. Today is for a lady living alone. When you can't think of what to do it is best to turn to challenges out there to get your inspiration going and today I went with the Dies R Us Challenge of things with wings. I decided to use a bird die that I don't know I have tried before, there are 4 birds in this set and I have used the cardinal a few times but thought I would change it up and use a blue jay this time. I colored him using distress inks with a dauber and on the parts I wanted it to be a darker blue I used a Q-tip. For the eye center I used some black enamel.
I framed it by using a die that only cuts out the center portion of the paper, Used a flourish leaf die for the bird to perch on and then thought I needed something a little more so went through my stash of already punched items and found these little flowers to add. I put some white enamel dots for the centers. The sentiment sticker comes in silver so I colored it with my markers to a brown.
