OSAAT #149 - Not Square
'Not Square' is the theme for the challenge over at One Stitch at a Time challenge blog. Please come and join us..
My image is Parrot by Barbara over at Stitchybear Digital Stamp Shop. I coloured her with my Promarkers and yes, she is a she! We usually get a calendar from Eric's cousin, who lives in Australia. Last year she bought us one of Australian birds and apologised because she knows I'm frightened of birds! I do love to feed them and watch them through the window but I'm terrified if they fly near me. Anyway, I couldn't bear to throw it away on New Year's Day because Eric loved it. When I printed off Barb's digi Parrot I immediately went to the calendar to check for colours. I've coloured her as a female Eclectus parrot - the male is mainly green.
After colouring her I cut with my Spellbinders grand oval nestie and used Distress Ink on the edges before matting on to a larger oval in red card. That was then matted on to the Craft UK card base which I'd made into a large scalloped oval with another Spellbinders grand nestie. To make the scalloped card stand out I photographed it against bright yellow paper - I'm not sure that was a good idea!!
