Even on a Bad Day...

If you like this image, you can find it HERE.
I love the simplicity of this image called 'Bird on My Knee' from Sami Stamps.  It will lend itself to so many occasions from "A Little Bird told me...", perhaps an "I'm Sorry", or "Thinking of You" to using this great sentiment from Ginger's House.

This will be my DT card for the current 613 Ave C's Challenge that is ATG/ Optional Twist is a Masculine Card.  Sami Stamps is the sponsor this go around. To see details on the challenge and a great collection of projects by the very talented design team at 613, click the direct link above.
  • For the focal image, I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension. Printed 2 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' her head & the bird.  I penciled in a box around her core and then fussy cut the parts outside the box. The extra parts were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.  You can see in that elevation in this angle shot.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP & the base CS used were hoarded papers from my stash.
  • Mats were created by using the same Copic color for the bird and coloring the edges that would show under the focal panel.

  • Blue Waxed Linen used for book binding was looped and glued behind the panels.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
