happy day...happy birthday

PTI Create Along with Us
January 2018

My favorite monthly challenge is PTI's 

As soon as I saw the card below by Wanda Guess during PTI's release week, 
I knew exactly what my project would be this month! 

The drama of color against a dark background along with the beautifully colored 
blossoms captured my eye and desire to try this technique. But, I was also in love
with the darling birds featured in the January release and choose birds instead of 
flowers for the focus. It turned out so pretty! IMHO

PTI Products:
Stamps & Dies: Songbirds, Ways to Say: Happy Birthday, Noted: A2
Paper: Smoky Shadow
Colored Pencils over Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink

Be sure to look at Create Along with Us where more entries are posted!
