A Little Birdie Told Me....

Hi all, for once I am not showing a card that I have made for a challenge for DS4J...but I am going to be showing you a new image of theirs that came out a couple of weeks ago. I am also going to be showing you a new digital paper line from Nana Vic's. So go grab yourself a cup of something and sit back, this is going to be a bit of a longer post. 

When first saw the image and the paper I knew that I had to make a card with them both. The hard part was colouring the image...not because it is a difficult image to colour but because I am still learning to use my Chameleon pens. I love them but they do take a bit to get used to when you have rarely used alcohol markers lol. 

So the image is called Bird Bath and the papers are called Shabby Chic, but there is nothing shabby about them. I absolutely love how they look with my project. They come in 4 different colours but for my card I used the blue. 
I used some sky paper that I found online at and printed my image out on it. I cut out the image and mounted it onto my Nestibilities Floral Oval. I cut out the pinstriped digital paper and the flowered digital paper with flowers and hearts using my Nestibilities Romantic Rectangles. 

I just love that image and these papers together. The green flourishes to the side of the images are from my Cherry Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourish die cut. I found the tutorial for this card at Cards, Crafts, Kids Projects. This is what it looks like from different angles....

Thanks for stopping in and I hope that I have managed to inspire you in some small way ~ Charlene
