Exotic Color


Want to brighten up your day with vibrant color?



Nature presents us with beautiful color
everyday....just look around.

One of my favorite displays of color is
the exotic bird.
This card is made using feathers from
two beauties like these pictured below.



Polly want a cracker?
Color doesn´t get any better than this does it?
I found these two on a foto search here.
Want a color overload,,,just google and type
in parrot fotos.

Three Muses and Theme Thursday will appreciate
this post.

Love that card with the stitching...such yummy details! Something very special, organic, & happy about bird feathers. Love how you've used them today! Xo

How do you do it?
You used these colours which in someone else's hands could be garish and cheap but you created a sophisticated, arty card - I take my hat off to you Cynnie. Honestly this is stunning.

Like your feather cards Cynnie! Awesome colors!

I LOVE my feathers and I most certainly LOVE what you've achieved here - a colour and texture riot!

Parrots are notorious for colour, screeching and messiness overload, and I love them all the more for it!

Wonderful post.

Cheers,

Cindy
