Animal Challenge

I've been having fun playing along with the challenges online.  Today I wanted to play with the MFP Simple Salutations Challenge 10 - Animals, so here is card 201 of the year, featuring the new card creator Spellbinder dies (love them!) and this elegant chickadee image from Marks Finest.
As usual, all colouring is with copics.
Have you tried these new dies?  They are so easy to work with, I totally recommend them!


  1. Like the soft look with the bird & branch image. Not heard of the Spellbinders Card Creator dies. I have several other Spellbinders. Where did you get these & are they as large as the Grand Calibur style which do not work in the Sizzix BIGkick since they are wider than the regular sized Spellbinders. Thanks for entering the Speedy TV Mark's Finest Papers (MFP) Simple Salutations Ch#10 Animal.

  2. Beautifully colored. Love the soft background too.

  3. Your card is so beautiful...I like what you did for the background...well done and good luck in the challenge

  4. Love the elegant simplicity of this beautiful card. Love how you colored the image and shaded the background.

  5. Gorgeous card! Won't even try with that image in the same challenge! Just love the airbrushing. Yours almost seems like a hopeful sympathy card, if you can think of just a thing. The new that comes with the end... Does that make sense?
