Pelican's Post

Now, you might think to look at this card that it's a nice easy CAS one!  Not so!  It took a couple of hours to make when you count in a couple of hitches along the way!  First off I had my main image (Pelicans Post from High Hopes) coloured and then I made a hash of die cutting it!  Next effort I was in the middle of paint splattering my BG and was a bit heavy with the splodging and ended up smearing it across the paper!  Third effort was splattering my BG again and managed to get some on my pelican (if I'd stuck down my mask a bit better it wouldn't have happened LOL) so I had to recolour another one and pop it up on dimensionals.  Ah well, I like the finished effort!
