All I know is that it went past in a blur, it went so quickly!
So I find myself on Daring Cardmakers Day again and no blogging since the last one. Must try harder....
This week it's Rein's turn to set the dare and she's chosen the lovely, popular theme of BIRDS.
It's an extra=special challenge this week as we not only have a lovely ribbon-y prize to give away, but are also able to offer everyone who joins in with us this week the chance to buy the same pack of gorgeousness at a special price - more of that in a minute.
This is my birdy card - I decided to go for 2 teeny-tiny little birdies.
Papers are MME - from 2 of the Lost and Found 6x6 pads
Brown Bazzill card, tiny black gems, red gems, red twine
Spellbinders dies for circles, flower and doily shapes
EK Success border punch (it's new so I had to try it out)
Craft Robo for tree and birds
The tree shape is based on a swirly tree clipart I saw, but I "hand drew" the trunk shape using the paintbrush tool, then added a long branch and circles of different sizes (with smaller circles inside) instead of swirls. To make the circles I just used the paintbrush tool with the the circular shaped "head" selected and changed the size of the paintbrush to get bigger or smaller circles. I always start by decreasing the colours so that I'm using only black and white.
The bird is a simple circle for the body, I used the "draw" tool to make any straight line sections (legs, feet, beak), then drew the shape of the tail feather piece, which I cut several times

Right, I am running soooooo late this week and really must try and tick some things off my list. I'll try and catch up on my blogging and blog-hopping soon though as I've been really really bad over the last few weeks - put it down to holidays, visitors and being ill!
All for now, thanks for popping by
