Happy New Year..Pheasant from Hambo Stamps

Well this was a fun Hambo Hoedown COLOR challenge~We were to use the colors of Hot pink, aqua, lime green, sunny yellow and orange! Choose three (or all) of those colors to spiffy up Pheasant! It's a New Year bird! :)  I never have enough Birthday cards so I jumped right in.

I freed the tail feathers up from the pheasant when I cut with the scalloped oval.  Threaded this neat very stiff rickrack I got at a LSS under the tail as an end accent-love that look!  This New Year Bird is called Pheasant-a digital image by Hambo Stamps and using such bright, vivid colors is definitely stepping out of my comfort zone!  BUT, I think it's a great way to expand my ideas and a good way to start 2013.  The image comes with 3 sentiments, and I've accented the one I chose with aqua dew drops.

There's lots of wonderful new product and projects coming up in 2013 for Hambo Stamps-clear acrylic stamps, ink supplies just to name a few!  We would love for you to join us~the DT group, otherwise known as the "Bacon Bits" get so inspired when we see the different interpretations of the images that you provide!!  Please become a Follower so that you can continue to get the newest challenge alert AND if submitted by the deadline, you can receive the next challenge digital image FREE!  What a great deal!  Hope to see you ALL around a lot in 2013!
