Braided Birds

Braided Birds - One Stop Craft Challenge is starting a new challenge today and the new challenge is Sparkle and Bling. Woo Hoo, one of my favorites!

Our sponsor this challenge is A Day for Daisies. If you are not familar with them, then you have got to go and check out the rest of their images. They are gorgeous!!!

I used Braid in my hair. I really enjoyed coloring her with my Copic's. She is beautiful and such a unique angle. Hair is always so fun to color. It makes me think of Cinderella with the animals helping her to get ready for the ball. I added Stickles to the birds. D

My DP is Pressed Petals, Baby Boy. I have a lot of grandsons, no granddaughters yet : (, so I buy a lot of blue papers. LOL Everything was inked with Peacock Feathers distress ink.

The rose ribbon was colored with the same Peacock Feathers distress ink and a blending tool. After it was inked, I added gemstones to the centers of the roses.

Come and show us your sparkle and bling at One Stop Craft Challenge.
