A Happy Hello

  Hello Crafty friends, Hope you are doing well and staying safe. I have been having fun creating cards for some challenges. I have another one to share with you all today.


I haven't really did very many tropical cards but I love this Image from Sheepski Designs called Tropical.

It took me two days to finish coloring the image because I get so nervous when I color. I started with the leaves and didn't know if I liked them or not. Was going to print out another image and try again but I thought let me try one more section. So I did the flower. That was o.k. so I kept going section by section.

 Then I came to the breast area. I wanted it to look more like ruffled feathers, so I took three different gray colors and randomly did dots of color. Wasn't for sure if it would turn out because I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to coloring. 

I was so glad when I finally finished it and I'm happy with the way it turned out. 

I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the image. The sentiments come from two different stamp sets from Trinity Stamps. Green paper is from my stash and the ribbon is Melon Mambo from Stampin Up. 

I am entering this card into the Things with Wings linky party over a STAMPlorations. 

There is still time to enter a things with wings project if you want. You have until  Friday, May 7, 11:55 p.m. to enter a project and you can enter up to 7 projects.
