Feathered Friends GDT with Paper Crafting Journey

Thursday - nearly the weekend!

And I am back this fortnight GDT-ing along with the talented girls at
And this weeks challenge is ....
Our Feathered Friends!

 I must send out a great BIG THANK YOU to the girls at 
PaperCrafting Journey for having me the past two challenges and for making my 
time with them so much fun! I really had a ball, thank you!

I also have to send out a thank you to Stef at
Glitterbabe Greetings for the Fancy Chick image I have used today!  

And while we are chatting about my card let's have a peaksie where I went with this challenge!

Today I colored my Fancy Chick with my Derwent water color pencils as they needed a workout it has been that long since I picked them up.  I added lots of layers and textures with the use of 3 DP's, some twine and ribbon.  For some strange reason I don't have a great stash of green ribbon so to make things match I got out my alcohol inks (Jaquard Pinata lime green), diluted and stained my once old stashed white ribbon and twine! Love how the two both match perfectly on the card.  I also had a play with some new beads and made a gorgeous 'posh pin' and the feathers and flowers are also from a recent shopping adventure!

This weeks challenge at PaperCrafting Journey is also being sponsored by the lovey Stef at Glitterbabe Greetings.

There is an awesome prize up for grabs this week so please stop by the PaperCrafting Journey blog for all the details and to check out the amazing inspiration the team has for you this week!
Thank you for dropping in on me,
and I hope you will join us this week and take up the challenge!
