Bluejay

Bluejays get a "bad rap", but they are beautiful just the same.  The Bluejay Set from Doodle Pantry is one of this month's New Releases.   I used copics, but it also comes pre-colored...isn't that great!

My pine trees mesh with other trees in my yard so I thought this combo would give the card a little extra dimension. I chose not to emboss the brown cardstock for extra texture; I was worried that it would look too busy.

  3. Absolutely stunning Cely!!! I put out peanuts in the shell for my bluejays. And when the dish is empty, they sit on my deck and squack up a storm until I fill it back up. I love 'em.

  5. Cely, I chuckled when I read Blue Jays get a bad rap - that they have with my youngest son because he got pecked on the head by one. =) Such a beautiful card. They are a beautiful bird you are so right!

  13. Cely, this is so gorgeous. I love your frame around this perfectly colored image. Our bluejays are trained, lol, they come for the leftover cat food that my husband throws outside each morning.

  15. I just got this set, Cely. What an inspiration I got from your card! Just printed out the image and will have to see what I can manage. I may have to CASE the hexagon -- I really like that.
