CHD Challenge Blog no 30 starts 15 March 2021

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart was delighted by Mary's selection for me to use for #30! How fun is this image!!!?!!! Let me introduce you to Mary's Createful Heart Design's "Flamingo Dance"--

You are my star diva card=

design and vendor notes:

a. Createful Heart Designs = Flamingo Dance digital image

b. Webster Pages' Hollywood collection = word stickers

c. Find Your Wings and Fly "Sky's The Limit" Mixed Chevron cardstock by Rhonna Farrer from 2013; offered by My Mind's Eye

d. yellow and ivory cardstock = in my stash

e. base dimensions extended to 5.25" x 7.25" in order to get a yellow backdrop and the chevron patterned backdrop, too

f. a scrap of a ivory/beige cardstock from a different company serves as mounting for the digital image

g. the digital image was sized to 3.5" x 5" and then trimmed in a way to highlight the width of the flamingo's feathers

h. image colored with a variety of colored pencils from different vendors; a bright pink and a raspberry type lavender were layered for the bird's main body; a paler pink was used for tail feathers; a bright pink was used for legs and beak; a vivid grass green provides the striped section on its beak; blue and green layered for the eyes' pupils and black to ring; casting a spotlight kind of look around the bird are a light yellow-green, a light peachy orange, a light blue, a bit of a gray-blue navy lightly applied; some green for grass near its dancing slippers and a light brown mixed with black for the final base ground
