FEEDING THE PIGEONS.

Time for another challenge over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week the theme is Anything goes with a bit of sparkle as an optional choice. Our sponsor again is the lovely DIGI DOODLE SHOP with a $10 spend in her store for the winner. She really does have some fabulous images, so if you like digi you must go and have a look.

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.

I shall enter it into the following challenges:
A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR - Anything goes.
ARTFUL INKABLES - Punches & Diecuts.
ANYTHING GOES - Animals. (hoping birds count)
FAB 'N FUNKY - Going with the Flow.
DIGI DOODLE SHOP Anything goes.
