Anyway, as our theme is Anything Goes - I grabbed the chance NOT to do yet another blurdy Christmas card and I chose this image from Digi Doodle Shop called 'Feeding the Pigeons' as it grabbed my eye the moment I saw it.
My papers are Basic Grey 'Periphery' and I coloured the image to suit the papers, using a slightly darker colour for his skin as I wanted him to look a bit weathered. Not sure if it works though, I think he looks more like he's got a suntan, ha,ha.
The brown card was white coloured with a Cocoa Promarker and the punch is Fiskars 'Threading Water'. The metal sentiment was in my stash and I chose it because I don't think there's anything in life more simple than sitting on a park bench feeding the birds. The brads are Tim Holtz bronze looking things and I offset the mat behind the image to use the....oh! I've forgotten what they're called, but I'm not sure if I like that either now. Oh well, I still like the image. :o)
Ah!!! Photo turns. That's what they're called, pmsl.

ARTFUL INKABLES - Punches & Diecuts.
ANYTHING GOES - Animals. (hoping birds count)
