Blue Bird

Blue Bird 2012

I have a card to show you, it is for our Challenge #47 at Color Me Creative. The challenge this time is all about NAVY BLUES/DARK BLUE. I have to be honest I found this challenge not so much fun. I did end up doing a total of 3 cards and I really was not happy with any of them. If you know me I have to get my Birds and Bloom magazine out and look up the blue bird so I tried to get the bird as close to the picture as I could. Not thinking I should of colored the blossoms blue not pink as the image is to be mostly NAVY BLUES. At this point I was NOT GOING TO COLOR ANOTHER IMAGE. So please if you do enter a card you need to color your image mostly in NAVY BLUES.
