Hello!

There is an Australian swap that I like to enter every month when possible and this is one of the cards that I sent to my partner for the September swap which had the theme of Animals. A quick conflab with Oz confirmed that yes birds would be classed as animals so I was good to go.
I have had this image from 'Digi Stamps 4 Joy' (called Whoose Looking At You ) in my files for 3yrs and never used so this was it's first outing.  


I have coloured with my promarkers and then ran a bit of glue around the edges and on the Emu and used Glamour Dust for a sparkle effect as there was not much colouring to do. The sentiment is by Winnie & Walter and was given the same treatment.  I used dark blue card stock to make the base card and layered a piece of gingerbread coloured card on top. I adhered the image and the sentiment on top and then lastly a sheet of acetate on top. Black sparkly sticky circle dots (from my stash) were attached to the 4 corners to hide the 3D pads holding the acetate in place.

  15. Hehe - I absolutely LOVE that image, which is odd because as a child I had recurring nightmares about emus. But it's the way it's looking at you - teaming it with the "Hello" die makes it absolutely perfect!
