Feathers and Sandy Claws

Today is one of those days where my projects are on opposite sides of the spectrum. My first project is for A Day for Daisies, and the second is for Left of Center.
***If you are looking for my latest Stampendous post, please click HERE.

Isn't this the sweetest image? It's called Bird in Flight. The joy on this boy's face makes me smile. Our theme this week is "Add a Feather."

I colored the image with my Tombow markers, and I added the polka dots with my white Sakura pen. My feather was created with my Feather stencil from Dreamweaver. I outlined it with a black PITT pen, and then I used some watercolors to color it in.

I fussy cut the Bird in Flight image out and added it on top of my feather. I also added a sweet sentiment from Stampendous! and some drops of Platinum Liquid Pearls. Ink, more paper...layer, layer, voila!
Now....opposite end of the spectrum. This week's theme for Left of Center is "Based on a Song." We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles, and I decided to go with the Kidnap Sandy Claws song.

He's pretty creeptastic, huh? This guy was also colored with my Tombow markers. I used scratchy lettering for the "Sandy Claws" and a couple scraps of paper. It was a quick ATC, but I think he's pretty cool.

Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daisies Blog, as well as the Left of Center Blog. Lots of great projects to see! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!


Holy cow!! I came over from the Stampendous blog hop, clicked on your name and was intrigued by "A Day For Daisies." I really loved "Bird in Flight," how sweet!

So, "Left of Center," what's that? Ok, when I say I was shocked, after scrolling down from cute and innocent little "Flight," I'm not blowing smoke here … total shock value!! WOW!! LOL!! I'm laughing at myself now, cause I certainly was NOT expecting your super creepy Santa!!

I'm so glad I stopped by! What an incredible artist you are! I'm awake now for sure! :-) Thanks so much for sharing your awesome talent!
