Brain Wave Challenge.....

Every Wednesday, Ashley over at Treehouse stamps, has a "Brainwave" Challenge. This pretty spring tote was this week's inspiration. So I decided to use Treehouse's newest set called Homegrown. I colored the bird three times using my Copics. I attached bird #2 to bird #1 on pop dots. Then cut the wings only from bird #3 and attached them to bird #2, again with pop dots. I wanted this bird to have some dimension! I finally used my Score Pal to add some texture to the white paper. The squares were cut using my Spellbinders. I added some felt ribbon and 3 glittery brads. (I ALWAYS have to have some bling.... : ) Head on over to the other designer's blogs to see what they came up with!




Have a great day everyone!

Sharon said...

what spectacular colours for this birdy...it's gorgeous especially to make it pop by 3D'ing it. That bag was great inspiration for a colour challenge.

Michele, that is incredible!! I love the idea to do that on the wings. I almost tried that on my butterfly for this challenge but I wasn't brave enough. LOL

Hugs,
Kristin
