Beautiful Brights

Hello.  Welcome.  The wind blows and a sprinkle of snow makes the world white.  We need some bright colours.  

I am sure no Oriole was ever this colour but artistic license rules tonight.  I saw Cornelia's card where she had embossed a flower in white and then brightly coloured it.  So I decided to use Stamplorations large oriole and coloured with galaxy markers.  I was trying to get a feathered look, so no, it's not just bad colouring!!  The hello is from Stamplorations Patchwork Frenzy set.   

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  2. This card is so STRIKING! The bright colors just pop against that black - totally pinning this!

  3. Gail, this is just amazing! I know that it is an oriole, but the coloring so reminds me of birds I saw in South America when I was growing up! Keep your license, my friend!

  4. Bold and crisp design. Thank you for sharing with us at CASology this week!

  5. This is such a pretty card. I love how you colored the bird, and it looks great against the black. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  6. White on Black is one of my favourite styles but I've not used it in a very long time, thank you for the reminder. The colouring is fabulous so pleased you found us at Towfers, hope we see you again soon. XOXO Zoe
