Time out challenge #17

Hi there!

Today I made time to join the : "Birds of a feather" challenge at Time out challenges.

Always want to play along but seldom get to it... so here it is!



The little robin comes from imaginisce.

I made my own cutting file for the little bird, by scanning the image after stamping. Opened the scan in my Silhouette programme and traced the stamped image to get a cut line , using a small off set. Then stamped the image on the cut out using Versafine onyx black. I then colored it with my promarkers.

Much neater than my own efforts to fussy cut!

3 strips of washi  to ground the image and 3 pearls for the finishing touch!

I think the sentiment is from hero arts.

Thanks for visiting me today!

May your week be filled with creativity!

This is sooooooo darn cute! Beyond fabulous pairing of the washi tape and the colors you used on your bird!

AND...a big thank you for reminding me about creating my own cut files! I have been 'consumed' with trying to get an image fussy cut for the past couple of hours! You just saved my day pal!!!
