Love Birds
(remember, you can click on the pics for a bigger view)
4in. wide x 5in. tall
yes-yes...of course i did the coloring, and i do not even own any copics yet. (wink-wink)
the love birds image is just right down my alley, i mean backyard. i have so many different birds living around  us and i feed them year around.. not all come during winter but starting early spring, oh my!

i used three different color markers for the leaves.
and a few more colors for the birds. i tried my best to blend the colors and i am very satisfied with the results.
i even used my old decorative scissors to cut around the sentiment frame.
Supplies Used:
love birds digital image: sk digis
watercolor paper: strathmore mixed media
patterned paper: basic grey (lucille collection)
markers: marvy uchida brush markers
