A Twisted Thursday Hummingbird!


I created this sweet card for the Twisted Thursday challenge, this time the twist was a sketch AND specific colors, pink, olive & purple! (mine=pixie pk, old olive & lovely lilac) The DPs are MME everyday tango. I wanted all to match so I used the coordinating SU! markers to color with a little Prisma pencil & Pearl Ex on my lovely hummingbird! The images were a FREE download from Squigglefly. I resized, cut and pasted until I had two separate images to print, then I cut out the bird and popped him! The sentiment is from SU! refuge & strength. I used sizzix swirls for the pink on pink bottom panel and look! I forced myself to use a button. Just happened to have one that matched (IRL) and threaded it through with olive floss!
This card was also made for Karen over at Crafty Goings On who is offering the 72 Copics as candy! Check it out!
Blessings!

Maria this is just beautiful!! That isn't a color combo that I would have chosen but it works perfectly together! You did a great job of coloring your images in and laying them out on the page!
