Mel Jen's Inspiration Post and Challenge

This week's challenge at MelJens is to use Shapes. Make sure you check out the challenge and participate. You could be named top five.

I made an inspiration card using one of MelJens new release images called "Country Scare Crow" and colored it with Copic Markers. I used DP from Imaginesce and cardstock from PTI.

I love wild birds, of all kinds. Even pigeons can be cute:) When I lived in NM the ravens (aka crows) were huge. They are almost the size of a chicken. They would call at me when I would leave the house to do chores outside. I really liked how when the sun would catch them, they would look blue. My favorite by far, is the blue bird. There are no blue birds where I am in AZ. However, the roadrunners are pretty amazing. I just got back from Mexico. I was in Punta de Mita and Puerta Vallarta. There were so many fabulous varieties of birds. I saw many heron and ibis. Also, the Friggit birds (great name right) were beautiful. Lots of pelicans, both brown and white. Speaking of things with wings-I have never seen so many varieties of butterflies (over 200 different in this part of Mexico).

I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches, sketch for inspiration. I also particpated in the "I've been framed challenge from Digital Tuesday.

Make sure you check out all the wonderful creations by the DT using these images! You can purchase these fabulous images and others from MelJen's Designs at the Whimsy Site.
