Hi Guys!
Well today I have another card for you featuring the artwork of Stacey Yacula for Purple Onion Designs.
Today we meet Peep. You may have seen Peep around already a bit as other designers have got their hands on him and worker their magic. Not that Peep needs any help from us, he's just as cute as can be all by his wittle twitttle self, don't you think?
So I wasn't sure what kind of bird Peep was supposed to be so I decided to make him one of my favorites, an Eastern Bluebird~ just love these little sweeties!!

Colors: Prismacolors and Lyras on Kraft

Punch: Martha Stewart
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities
Button, twine and ric rac: from stash

Both birdies are so very cute - the natural one and the image! And I love your color choice - it was a very good decision to gear it to the "original" :-)

Tine said...

Love the card shaping, Dorcas. He is such a cute birdie too. Never heard of an Eastern Bluebird before but I can see why he is fav of yours. Such vibrant colouring.

Did you say "Purple"...LOL! Funny that we didn't see any on your card...sorry...couldn't help but tease you.

Card looks great. You are one of my favorite colorers (is that a word?) the image looks so good.

Thanks for the "peep" about my word verification. Its turned off now.

Tracy said...

YAY! You got to make a Peep card too. That is the sweetest little bird image and I love how you modeled him after the bluebird. I saw one of these not long ago. Their colors are so vibrant. :-) Super cute Dorcas!
