Flutter By

Welcome to another great Corrosive Challenges challenge.  This fortnight challenge is Flutter By.  You must use something with wings in your project.  We are sponsored by A Day for Daisies.  I used this adorable bird.  As you know, my husband and I have 5 parrots.  My husband has recently decided he wanted an outdoor bird family as well.  He started with just a few feeders and is well on his way to being obsessed.  He even takes our parrots over to the window to watch the wild birds eat.  I was inspired by our new family of birds when I made this card.

Masculine is not my forte but I gave it a whirl.  I wanted to go as natural as I could for this.  I used Copics, SU dimensionals, burlap, distress inks, and some Tattered Angles spray.  It didn't come out the way I planned but I hope my hubby likes it anyway.  He is so cute.  He is so happy when he watches the birds at the feeders and worries if they aren't there when he gets home from work.

Please check out A Day for Daisies and then head over to Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of the design team created.  And join in the challenge won't you?
