Bird of Paradise

I made this gorgeous card, Doodle Pantry Bird of Paradise, for a friend who's recuperating from surgery. I thought this bright, cheerful flower would cheer her up. I was quite surprised when the colours turned out almost exactly like the photo I had of it, perfect! I've entered this into Papertake Weekly which is putting on the glitz, Charisma Cardz challenge which is spring and Stamp Something which is something funky.

Stamp: Doodle Pantry Bird of Paradise, sentiment from Doodle Pantry Everyday Birdies
Paper: summer sun, brilliant blue, whisper white, Stampin Up hostess dp
Ink: morning marigold, brilliant blue
Other: prisma markers, stickles, rhinestones, ribbon

  2. This is breathtaking, Dawn! The coloring of the flower is gorgeous.

  3. Gorgeous, love it! Such beautiful colour combinations.

  4. Wowza, Dawn, this is gorgeous, such beautiful colors!!!

  5. This is beautiful! I'm new to cardmaking and just wondering how you added the color to the flower. When I looked at the image at Doodle Pantry I sae that it was just a black outline.

    1. Hi Anonymous, I coloured the Bird of Paradise with Prisma markers, which are alcohol markers. Copics, prisma, spectrum, sharpies are all alcohol markers. I grabbed an image off of google and then tried to copy it.
