This cute little image just called out to me to be put on a card. What's that you say? How is this related to the theme? Okay, I'll agree, the link is tenuous, but these are obviously love birds, sitting in a heart tree, so they must live there, right? I'm sure their cozy little nest is just out of the picture, further along the branch. There, I feel completely justified. My little birds started out pink, but they looked rather, um, naked! Adding a little mauve shading made them looked less plucked. I wanted the hearts to stand out, so gave them some glossy accents for shine. Once I had that centre panel done, I needed a little more inspiration, so I used CPS sketch #252 -- of course, I couldn't post the card till today, so missed the challenge deadline.
I decided to create a second project for this week, a little more obviously tied to the challenge theme:
These new home gift tags are made with the Cottage Home set from Waltzingmouse.
