Birthday Bird

Here is another card I made out of the images and goodies I received from my Secret sister!  Isn't she great!!  I definately think so.  This great bird image is from Whipper Snapper, I company whose whimsical stamps I drool over but I don't own any!  But now I have a few of these great images to play with!                                              
I decided to color him in with a few Copic markers.  Because I wanted a green and blue bird, I had to do the "feathering technique".  It is a little tricky and I clearly need a bit of practice but it worked.  I decided to run the sentiment along the flower and then cut along the line which resulted in a very interesting shape for a focal pointAnd look at that great background paper, isn't it lovely!    A bit of black crochet thread and dimensionals and the card was finished. 
Thanks for dropping in to my little corner of the blog-dom.   Have a great day!

Feathering technique? What is this? Your coloring is beautiful here and I wouldn't have a clue how to pull it off. Care to share?

The whole card is so pretty! Love the black thread and fresh colors!

I think you nailed the colouring of your bird! (And like Susan, I haven't heard of the feathering technique, but then I'm not a Copic insider, either. :P)
