From Our Nest
Who can believe May is here already? It really doesn't seem like it because it has been a cool, rainy Spring. Rain, rain, go away...I want to work in my yard and it seems to be so ugly on weekends when hubby is home to help. Hmmm....is he ordering that rain? LOL
Shirley Quarry is our hostess for the month of May at CCEE Stampers and is bringing us some fun challenges. This week's challenge is Make it Shimmer. As you can see, or maybe you can't, I have shimmer on the center of my flowers. That is gold Stickles and I must say they aren't shimmering much in the photo, but they are looking pretty good in real life. I also put glossy accents for a bit more shimmer on the bird's yellow wings...not showing at all. Sorry.
I did have fun coloring my image which is a digi from Digital Two for Tuesday, taken from The Buddy Magazine. I tried to make my birds look like male and female red winged black birds. After coloring, I sponged around the image in blue.
We hope you'll join us this week and let your card shimmer and sparkle. Just add your card with the inlinkz tool. Happy stamping!
