For the Birds

This weeks image from Faith @ is "For the Birds Snowman".

The hat, scarf and pocket are all paper pieced, his jacket is Copic markers along with the hearts and nose. As I have a limited # of Copics - the birds were colored in w/good ol' colored pencils. I added some shimmer and snow, and then I got an idea. Faith also had a cute image "Balancing Hearts" that I thought would look awesome incorporated into the design. So, I opened up my Adobe Photoshop, merged my 2 images together and this is my final product.

On the horizontal brown piece of card stock ~ I used ColorCore cardstock, ran it thru my Cuttlebug, and then sanded it. Below is a close up to show some more of the details a little better.

I will also be entering this in the CardPatterns weekly sketch blog Designed2Delight is offering TWO $10 gift certificates this week- that's 1 certificate for TWO different random participants.
