Four Calling Birds

This image is by Dawn Davidson Art.  I am really enoying making these larger Christmas cards.  This is my third card in the 6 x 8 format.  This image was colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I am finding that I really like the combination of the two.  The pencils are working well for me coloring fine detail, such as hair strands and eyes.  The Copic definitely work better in the larger areas.  The wings are outlined with Stickles. When I first bought this image I thought her face was very broad.  After coloring her face appears much slimmer.  Maybe, I need to color mine!  I have no idea who this paper is from.  I think it goes very well with this image.  My entire craft desk is covered with different paper that I was trying to choose from.  This paper was the winner.  I lied in my last entry to Maorgan's Art World.  I decided to make a third entry.  Now I can't do another!
