Here's Emma's original.
I was super lucky to win one of the Simon Says challenges recently and this Tim Holtz birdie was one of my goodies - coloured with watercolours and clear gloss added to his eyes and beak. I die cut a couple of circles to make a stencil and then chalked my background with purple, green, blue and yellow chalks. I gave it a bit of a swoosh with glimmer mist and then flicked some watercolours. I also did a bit of stamping in the BG and then added some white enamel dots and a few sequins.
I don't think I've ever done so much fussing over a background but I LOVE how this turned out ... I'll definitely be giving this style a go again! :)
