Non-traditional Valentine colors...

613 Ave C has a new challenge... "ATG/ optional Twist: Love".  You have the month of February to show your creative talents!  For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas - check out the DT inspiration concepts HERE!

I like to see this image as a Hawk and a Snowy Owl... thus the coloring choices.  Coloring with Copics, I added mountains and craters using a blender pen and a darker YR on the moon.  A blue transparent ribbon was added over the vertical strip of DP and then I sewed it on with brown waxed linen from my bookbinding supplies.  The image and all the papers were rescued from the pile on my desk... you know "the one where things are shoved to the back to make room for each new project for months till it is way too cumbersome to deal with and must be dealt with" pile.  Long story shorter - I have no source for either.

  6. Okay, now I know I say this on every one of your cards (and it's always true, too), but this is an AWESOME card, my friend! I adore the bright non-traditional colors you've used and the color combo is simply stunning. Your image coloring skills are just amazing and I like your sewn down ribbon idea (nice for texture). Your paper anecdote made me smile!
