The Kingfisher

150mm

Yet another easel card....I think I may be slightly adddicted to these :-)

I've made this in response to a request for a card for someone who loves kingfishers.
I have to agree they are such delightful birds.

I've kept it simple...just this delightful image matted on to silver holographic mirri card and fixed with foam tape.
The BP is a freebie from Jak (Crafters Kitchen), gold leaf.
I opened it in Photoplus and 'cut out' a square, pasted it into my DTP prog and put a frame around it in this pretty blue. This is a neat way and doesn't waste paper with matting and of course also saves on printer ink.

I still think it needs something more but can't think what....flowers and ribbon don't feel right....so unless someone can come up with a bright idea... this is it.




I added an extra layer to the kingfisher and he really looks like he is sitting on the branch




Thank you for stopping by.... see you again soon :-)
