How thrilled was I this week, when I got to play with 'Ikes Art - Cuckoo Clock'!?!
The theme over at Glitter n Sparkle, is..
"include an animal"
(on the last count, there were:
2 birds, one owl, three butterflies and a squirrel)
I love this image -
although it was a real challenge to colour!
(You kinda think it all needs to be brown,
like a wooden cuckoo clock....)
...but I took that challenge and did my best with it.
(Actually, I made a card after colouring the image, and just hated it,
so ripped it up and binned what I couldn't reuse.
I had to print out the image again and I had a much better stab at it... )
So this is card number 2.
I'm much more pleased with it!
I coloured this with my promarkers...and used about 6 different shades of brown
and 2 different greens
The two little birds (underneath the clock)
were from my memory box die, which just fit beautifully.
The diecut corners are from a cuttlebug die that I got recently
(a bargain £1 for 4 corner dies,,,still sealed!)
and the butterflies are punched from my old favourite..Martha Stewart.
The distressed looking background is another fairly new item I have...
I won this on a blog challenge last year and hadn't got round to using it yet.
