Bird Sampler and Garden Friends

More peeks! I love that Asela did life like images.

The hummingbird-flower image is colored with copics, then I used Twinkling H2O's to add some shimmer! I cut into the wing to 'feather' it, but don't think it shows in the photo. It's only attached behind the leaves using a dimensional.

The butterfly colored with copics, then given a coat of clear embossing powder. This intensifies the colors and also makes it easier to cut out those fine details like antennae. This is a 'Z' card fold... take your cs 10 7/8x 4 1/8, fold in half and fold the front portion back on itself. The butterfly is popped up on a dimensional.
