Sparkely sparrow

My take On the cuttlebug sketch challenge CB120


I've been kicking around the idea of coating a bird in glitter since the first sighting of so tweet chipboard in the new catalog. But then again I dream of covering everything in glitter :) what can I say once a girly girl always a girly girl. I did however encrust this birdie in a pale pink glitter first only to decide that it was to washed out looking, so little birdie got re-glued and coated in this chunky pink, much better. Coloring chipboard with markers is so cool, it looks dark at first but don't worry it will dry nice and even. I hope you like it!
pixie pink CS, pink pirouette CS, tea party DSP, so tweet chipboard
jumbo brads, corner rounder, photo corner punch, cuttlebug folder, SU markers
