Bird Hero

On Friday, my hubby and I took a little trip to see Marianne Walker at Jerry's Artarama and she gave me the most wonderful advice. The trick is now to apply it to paper lol. My problem was that everything looked flat, she said I need contrast and here is my first attempt at contrast, hopefully it turned out OK. This image is from Hambo Stamps and it is a progressive freebie from doing their Hambo Hoedown Challenges every week. I used the following materials:

Copics: B00/B02/B04/B28/Y21/Y23/Y18/Y26/Y28/R14/R17/R27/Y38
Background paper is from ATD - Super Hero pack
Striped paper is from American Crafts
Red cardstock is from Nicole Crafts
Star is from Martha Stewart Punch
Cryogen White cardstock is from Paper Temptress
Ribbon is from my stash.
