Birds and tortoises of a feather….

….stick together!

The challenge at Just Some Lines is Give Thanks this time.There are some changes to the challenge too.From now on only projects made with Just Some Lines images can be entered.But the good news is there will be a freebie image posted on the blog for the duration of the challenge for you to use!Just pop on over to Just Some Lines to find out all the details.While you’re  there don’t forget to get inspired by the DT’s creations.

For my card I’ve used the adorable Turt n Peep – Peep by Just Some Lines with Copic Ciao Markers.I added some texture to the bird and dotted some blender over the tortoise’s face to give that  kind of scaly look they have about them.I found some papers in my stash that I thought would compliment his shell and dug out a Spelllbinders Impressabilities that I’ve had a few years and never used :0 I typed and printed the sentiment using my ‘puter then cut the tag using a Quickutz die.Because I wanted to define it where it is layered over the image I ended up hand cutting a piece of kraft to mount it onto.So we’ll just ignore the wonky cutting and move on 😉 I die cut a flower from a coordinating paper and added a couple of die cue leaves and a brad.
