Quirky Parrots


Hi everyone!  Just a quick post today before I fight the crowds to do my Easter shopping.  The card I'm sharing today showcases the new digital Quirky Parrot set by Doodle Pantry.  It's the free set that all participants who play the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 22 (DPDC22)  will receive!  This challenge runs through April 24.  Sure hope you can join us!  If you can't play with us, this set will be available for purchase at Doodle Pantry after the challenge closes.  BTW, this set comes with both outline and colored images as well as digital paper and sentiments.  

For my card, I used 2 of the parrots that come with this set.  Both images were colored and shaded with Copics.  I paper- pieced parts of both images digitally as well as by hand.  I also used pastels to create the cloud background.  The dotted background paper comes from another Doodle Pantry set called Balloon Ants Color Plus.

I will be entered this card in the following challenges:
Do You Stack Up #66 -- Friendly Critters
Cupcake Craftroom April 2012 Challenge -- Bugs n Birds n Wings n Things
Twisted Tuesday Challenges (2TC1) -- The Clouds are Coming (I used pastels to create the clouds.)
Inspire Me Fridays 53  -- Anything Goes

Thanks so much for your visit.  Wishing everyone a  wonderful weekend, and a very Happy Easter!
