Less is More - Exotic

Each day is getting a bit better.  It is now much easier to type and I can type with two hands again! More time in the gym which has been good, I'm hoping next week my hubby will take me out to the courts for some mild hitting practice :)  Please!!!!!

Time for another challenge over at Less is More.  This week the challenge theme is Exotic! Wow...wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go with this one...but here's what I came up with.

 I went through my stamp set and settled on this fun little bird.  I haven't used this one and was anxious to try it out!

I stamped the bird, masked him off, stamped the tree, then masked them both off.  I then created the background these clouds!

I then colored my images with Copic Markers and stamped the sentiment.

All in all, a pretty quick card!

Here's a close up of the card.

Hope you come on over a join us. We are looking forward to what you come up with!



  1. What a fabulous card, Susan. Your colouring is fantasic as always and I LOVE that cloudy background xx

  2. I love this card Susan, so bright and cheerful with that fun bird (is it a toucan?). Just gorgeous! x

  3. Glad to hear you're slowly on the mend again Susan - you're a brave cookie! Superb card too and definitely shines with exotic tones and colours and the bird is just delightful. Have a good week. x

  4. This is such a fun card Susan! Love that cartoony bird and your sky is absolutely superb. Great to hear that you are slowly mending. Hope you get the chance to hit the courts this week.

  5. Susan a great take on the exotic brief, I love your card and so would like to be where that toucan is right now, but maybe under the tree rather than up it. Great inking and inspiration.
    Thanks for popping by.

    Hugs Erika. x
