For today's card I did two of the parakeet panels in monochrome and one in vibrant colour.
Quite often when I have colouring to do I'll take everything down to the dining room as I can spread it out all over the table. This is a photo I took of the making of this card - I think I need a bigger table!
I stamped three panels then coloured two of them in shades of grey (not 50!) I used ProMarkers as a base layer then added some shading with Spectrum Noir pencils.
I then masked all of the birds off so that I could add the clouds.
I repeated the same procedure for the middle panel, but this time using bold colours for contrast.
To finish it off I cut each panel out, matted and layered them and added the word "Beauty" to the coloured panel. The surround for this was cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two die.
Who's a pretty boy then?!
