Rainy Day Birdbrains
Good morning! It's time for a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Jennifer has chosen our challenge and she would like to see "April Showers"...that's right, umbrellas or raindrops! The challenge made me think of this new "Rainy Day Birdbrains" image from Faith, so I went with it and used this week's From the Heart Stamps sketch too. Here is the sketch:
The image is colored with pencils and I've added lots of sparkly glitter (love the stuff!). I figure that you need a little sparkle on a dreary, rainy day! The sketch was a bit challenging for me, but I finally figured it out.... I coordinated some bright patterned papers and embellished with die cut clouds and buttons. This was a fun one to make!

***My tip for Top Tip Tuesday is this.... Are you afraid of mixing/matching patterned papers? My tip is to just go for it! Have some fun! Chances are that if they are in the same paper collection, they will look good together. I like to vary the sizes, patterns, and color of the papers.
Thank you for stopping by!
