Quirky Stork


Happy Sunday, everyone!  Today's card uses the new Doodle Pantry digital set, Quirky Stork.  It's this month's featured set for Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 35 (DPDC35).  All participants who enter this challenge and create a project that follows the theme/rules will be emailed this set for free!  Challenge runs through June 24, 9 PM ( EDT).

For my card above, I merged the outline image from Quirky Stork onto some digi paper and added some digital paper piecing.  After printing the image, I colored it with Copics.  I glittered the gray shadows on the wings and bridge of the beak.  (Unfortunately, I couldn't get the sparkle to show in the photo.)   I used lots of layers and die cuts and finished with rhinestone embellishments.  IRL, there's lots of sparkle and shine!



 

I also will be entering this card in the following fun challenges:
365 Cards Day 159 -- Sparkle and Shine (I added rhinestones & glittered the gray shadows on wings & top of beak.)
Crafty Calendar June Challenge -- Things with Wings
Totally Gorguss Challenge 188 -- Hey Baby! - cards for a baby
Digi Haven Anything Goes Challenge for One Year Anniversary -- Must use a digi (Congratulations on 1 year!)

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

  6. Hello Pat, followed you via the Outlawz link, and love your card. Your merging of the digi image onto your paper was interesting to learn, and then admired your copic shading. I'm guessing the digi paper was ?cardstock? Never tried using copics on 'paper'. This is a cheery & bright card that the recipient will love. Hope you'll visit me when you have time, as I love making new blog friends, and finding new blogs for inspiration. I'll bookmark your site so I can get back, and look around to join as a new follower. TFS
