Bold and Bright Bird

I was lucky a little while ago and won a choice of any stamp set from artistic Stamper and this is one of the birds that I won. I'm not going to tell you how long it took to pick this out . Long time figuring it out.  This is one of those cards you need sunglasses to enjoy, but I'm really liking how this turned out. Love the sentiment Happy Wishes can be a birthday card or just a friendly Hello Card.  The image is coloured with pencil crayons using the burnish technique with using a lighter shade of the colours I was working in

  1. Wonderful card to start my Monday morning! I love how you've coloured your image, I've not heard of the burnish technique. I quite understand how long it takes to choose digi stamps especially when it's fabulous artwork :D. Debra x

  2. Love your bright sunshiny card Nikki. Just what I need on a wet rain sodden Monday morning (with the house upside down because the guys have moved in to start the new kitchen). Love the stamp you chose - now I just might have to go and find out a bit more about it. Great work Nikki!
    Hugs, Neet xx
