Hoping to join in a few wonderful challenges going on out there in blogland with this card.
I find this image entirely precious and when I saw the little boy chasing the butterfly, I had to color it up. It reminded me of my son this past Saturday in the garage. I had the doors open for ventilation while I was painting some furniture and I had to pop in the house for a second. I came back out to the worst sounding thuds. A hummingbird was attacking the ceiling light! It flew aimlessly for nearly 30 minutes, with no indication it was remotely close to finding the exit. You know what it takes to catch a hummingbird? Well, it's not....
1. Me standing on a ladder with a blower
2. Chasing it around with a grocery sack
3. Making your son take off his red shirt and flag it. (It's a bird, not a bull)
4. Hanging a feeder by the hinge of garage opener
5. Strategically standing on footstools and ladders with fly swatters
6. Placing assorted red items all over the driveway in hopes of 'luring' said bird. This only attracted neighbors.
Nope, not one of those...
It took one hour and 45 minutes of my son trying to toss a sheet over it. Amazingly he managed to wear the poor bird out and the dang thing hopped onto the sheet, allowed my son to pick it up and then flew away as soon as he stepped outside. OMG...I needed a nap, that was so exhausting watching him! So, now you know why I had to color this image. ;)
I've colored this image Mum and Kids from Nicecrane Designs with copics and tried my hand again with the clouds using a paintbrush. Did a little 'whisping' of the brush on the grass as well.
My scrap drawer is steadily lessening as I've incorporated more of them on this little creation.
Supplies used here are a doily, baker's twine, antique brad, top note die cut, scraps of paper, tag, hugs and kisses words are rub-ons. Accompanying the card is a completed interior as well.
Thank you so much for stopping in!
