Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there. Today we have another awesome challenge for you from Platypus Creek Digitals. The challenge is Black, White and One Other Color. As you can see, I chose olive green as my color.
I asked our fearless leader, Tracey, to pick the image for me for this challenge. Boy did she pick the right one. As you know, I have a house full of parrots. My father-in-law finds them fascinating so I thought this image would do double duty for me. First of all, be my design team card and secondly, for my FIL's Father's Day card.
I started with this image called Birdcage on Branch from Platypus Creek. I cut it out and popped it up. The Birdcage was cut away from the branch and then reattached with some black and white twine. The cage swings freely. The designer paper was from Graphic 45. It was a leftover piece from the Wiz of Oz collection. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I know my bow is placed a little too high but I had to do it that way. I blackened the edges of the image after I cut it out and smudged a little ink on the paper. I had to cover it up. It is hard to tell but the DP trim and the scalloped edge is actually popped up above image. It doesn't really show through on the picture.
