Bald Eagle


Today starts the February Challenge at Morgan's ArtWorld Challenge Blog. I chose the image Bald Eagle.  I colored this image with Prismacolor pencils and soft pastels.  It took quite a while to find just the right paper.  My stockpile of designer papers is quite extensive and not sorted well at all.  That's something I'll need to work on in the future.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Digi Choosday - Anything Goes
A Place to Start - Anything Goes
AAA Birthday - Anything Birthday Goes
Jan's Digi Stamps - Anything Goes 
Allsorts - For Boys/Men  
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Park Hopping-My Happy Place - Anything Inspired by a Theme Park

  12. Perfect coloring, Diane, and makes a gorgeous guy card for sure! I'm not convinced it's worth it to organize papers. Mine are well organized and it takes me forever to find something. {Sigh} If I didn't have so much I'd just do digital. Have a good weekend! xoxo
